I had a breast reduction because I am 5'0"...

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?

He did not have very good bedside manner. He burped in my face, did not seem too concerned when I had my infections.
