Sorry, I missed this. When I had my implant, I had more done than just that. I had a plastic surgeon trying to fix two other doctors screw ups. My healing took quite a while and I was on a lot of pain killers (some treating a back injury from when I was a paramedic and some from that surgery. Anyway, increased swelling, pain and fever crept up on me and we never noticed it until I was hallucinating. By the time the septic shock was caught, my doctor felt I was probably within 12 hours of meeting my maker. The only way to save my life was to remove the implant and clean me out. I had nothing for 6 months and then Dec 14, 2017 I was re-implanted... turns out it was my best Christmas present. I love it and so does my wife.
