Dear Kanwal,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Wound infection is very uncommon in breast procedures but can occur occasionally. Was the pus sent for culture and sensitivity? The antibiotic should be started according to that report only. In addition you should get regular dressings done. Once the wound has healed satisfactorily, it can be sutured back.

Hope you get well soon.
