Has anyone gotten infection after surgeries, or had a very slow recovery due to infection, or know of anyone that has?

    I developed staph after a double mastectomy with reconstruction and had to have the implants removed and additional tissue as well. The second surgery was on 9/13/11 and I am still packing one side (drains stopped working, both sides) and still have the sutures in both. Hopefully those come out tuesda
