    Has anyone ever gotten an infection after a lumpectomy? Did it take long to get rid of it?

    I developed a low grade infection a couple weeks after my second lumpectomy, took antibiotics and it went away. About a week later it came back. I'm at the end of my second round of antibiotics and it's still there.
