Infection after 4 months :(

Back again as I needed somewhere to write to help me get through this again,in September time I got my implant put back in and everything looked like it was going well apart from implant twisted and I knew was going to have corrective surgery at some point this year. Till, 4weeks ago my right side started feeling odd and started to feel hard,last week went to doctors first as really didn’t want to admit to myself that there was a problem. Doctor said had an infection so got put on strong anti biotics and to come back and see her this week went back and still looks red and warm to touch,more anti biotics and I had to make the call to Mike (amazing surgeon) so back off to see him on Wednesday. I am so upset and worried due to everything that happened the last time with infection and losing my implant,I know I shouldn’t worry but hard not to,only time will tell on Wednesday what will happen :(
