Hi. I had breast augmentation on the 1st December 09, everything ok, healed nicely until 14 days later, I started with a cold and pain in my left breast, my ribs, my back, swelling and my skin turned bright red and it was painful to breath so was advised to go to A&E as the surgeon wasnt available, where they gave me antibiotics. Day 16 I went to the surgeon, who put me on a antibiotic drip, did some tests, examined me and said he would have to remove the implant, which he did on another surgeons advice also. My blood results came back with no known infection but I have been given information by the nurse who said there had been no infection at all and it was probably my body rejecting the implant. I questioned the surgeon again who said there was an infection but not a serious one and my body had responded to the antibiotics. What does it all mean, no known infection and rejection of the implant and what do you think possibly happened. Thanks and hope you may help me understand a little more.
