Re: surgery for infection

Hello Dale,

 

I had an infection which developed a few months after the surgery when everything seemed healed. In my case it was thought to be due to my implant which I have since learned can cause infection.

 

You don't say much about your own situation. It was very diffiuclt at the time and my recovery was lengthy, but did happen eventually.

 

Good luck Rattles

surgery for infection

I had my first op on 18th october, lumpectomy and node check, 2bd op in 22nd November full node clearance, good news no more cancer. But uve had a seroma drained 4 times and been in antibiotics fir an infection. I go back into theatre today they are going to open the wound back up to flush it out I will be left with a drain in afterwards. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Can't believe I have to have more surgergy, U was just getting back to some normality. Would love to hear from anyone. Best wishes dale xxx
