2 1/2 mos post op breast lift with 500 cc saline implants. my incisions have healed and my ps has cleared me to do all activities. 1 week ago, after i tried jogging for the 1st time, the side of my right breast became flushed and pink. I thought i was flushed from the workout but it has stayed pink for a week now. It hasnt gotten any worse either. no fever, no pain, its warm to the touch but not hot. i have a call in to my PS - no response yet. if i had an infection it would be obvious right?
