    Infection

    Oh No

    Three weeks after surgery, I wasn't feeling any better. I was sore and very swollen in the breast and underarm area. While I was getting ready to shower I noticed slight redness in the effected area.I went to see my regular Dr. and was told I had cellulitis (inflammation of the cells) in that area. My surgeon had not warned me of this, it seems it's not unusual for this to occur post-op.
