Infected Tissue expander

Hello all


Im hoping someone has experience this before ( sorry) I have had a double mastectomy then tissue expanders Right side got infected and i have been on antibiotics for 4 months trying to get rid of the infection Last week I had to have the right side out The Dr said i have a staph infection in the expander and probably from the first surgery
