Ongoing pain after removal of implant
I am so sorry to hear of your pain and the failed implant. This is not a normal occurrence but unfortunately you are in the midst of it. Five days after surgery it is not unusual to still have discomfort, but with that amount of medication you should be getting some relief. It could be that a different antibiotic is needed, depending on what type of infection is present. If the practitioner who placed your implant doesn't have a 3-D imager, you may want to seek an opinion from one who does. These images are invaluable in diagnosing issues such as yours. Good luck and feel better soon!
