Just answered your other question about a revision that you posted. Sounds like things are more complicated than you mentioned in that posted question. It sounds as though you have ongoing issues with implant infections. These can be very hard to clear and may eventually require removal of the implant. Sometimes the best option is to remove the implant, allow several months for the infection to clear, and then consider placing a new implant or tissue expander in the future. You need to make sure you are seeing a local board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns and your goals. Your case is much too complicated to be dealt with on an online message board and no one here can offer you any concrete advice that is going to help you in the long run.Best of luck!
