I had a breast reduction because I am 5'0" and wore a 36 dd bra and was experiencing back pain.
My surgery was fine until every visit became a wheres waldo except with stitches. 3 months later and I still have stitches. I am happy with the results just not happy with my surgeon and some of his practices.I recently had a breast reduction in August of 2009. I have been going to my doctor about every 2 weeks since September for a checkup. Every time I go though, he finds stitches he forgot to take out. I was showering the other day and I felt 2 more stitches. Since my surgery I have had 2 infections in my breast from cellulitis. Is it normal for surgeons to leave stitches in and not keep track of how many they put in?
