I had breast augmentation on June 25, lots of pain from the beginning, no fever, redness or ternderness although I never had total pain relief at anytime after the implants. On August 15, my left breast had a pin size hole in the incision and was leaking pus. I called the doctor and was immediately put on Keflex, The following Monday another physician took a culture.
I saw my doctor Wednesday and he opened the incision and cleaned it. The following Wednesday the right breast developed a red swollen area at the incision and that one was opened and cleaned but by the next day, Friday the right breast was oozing again and by the next Tuesday the left breast had to be reopened and cleaned again.
I have seen an infectious disease doctor and thus far have had approximately 7 cultures and 1 tissue culture and to date no growth. I was on 2 different antibiotics. My implants were removed on Monday Sept 8 due to more leaking around incisions. Both breasts had drain tubes placed. The left drain was removed sept 11. Anti biotics were stopped on Sept 22. The right drain is still in and continues to have a yellowish gunky fluid. The Doctors seem to be stumped as to the cause or solution.
I was wondering if any Physician has heard of a similar situation? Thank you
