Breast operation 1Jear later

I had a breast reduction 12 September 2011. I can still feel stitch material inside the wound of one breast and every three months a lump forms and bursts. My surgeon claims it is n bacteria but even on a od of antibiotics it still happens.

I suggest that you reconsult your surgeon and ask him to do an ultrasound. Maybe there is an abscess present, due to the stitch used. If your surgeon is not forthcoming, you should get a second opinion.
