I saw my surgeon this morning. He said the fall didn't cause the infection. It was to advance. He said that it would have had to be developing for at least 4 weeks. But I had no symptoms except feeling tired. I have to go in for more surgery in the morning. They will be removing my implant and leads. Then they will put a machine in the wounds to drain the infection. I have to have that done every day until it is better. I have to stay in the hospital for at least through next Monday. I have to stay on strong antibiotics for six weeks. Than they will determine if I will be able to have the implant redone. I just broke into tears. I will feel the pain come back full force. The procedures to clean the infection is suppose to be very painful, as well. I know GOD is with me, I am just having a hard time knowing what I am about to face again. There is the possibility I might not be able to have the transplant put back in. It has helped me so much. I will be back to square one again if I can't have it put back.
