I had a breast augmentation with saline-filled Silicone implants 6 days ago. The night of my surgery, I started having a rash around my navel. I went back to my surgeon the next day and he thought maybe from antibiotic and to stop it. I did this, but the rash continued to get worse.
I stopped demerol and used darvocet instead, all of which I have had before with no problems. The rash has done nothing but get worse. Benadryl hasn't helped, creams have not helped. The rash is now all over my abdomen, back, arms, between fingers, and starting on my legs. It is what I would consider severe, it is flaming red and purple, raised and some places has bumps that looked fluid filled.
I am now taking a pred. pack that I started yesterday. I have not seen any improvement yet. Any thoughts on what this could be from?
Also, my left breast has already dropped some even before taking off the tape, but my right breast seems to be rising instead of dropping. I am very concerned about capsular contracture. My plastic surgeon has not recommended massage as of yet, it is under muscle. But I will not acutally see my pc until I am 2 weeks post op.
Any thoughts? Allergy? Capsular Contracture?
