Re: Abscess-- going in for I&D tomorrow
hang in there. Obviously, i can't comment on your situation, but "necrotic tissue" is dead tissue. It usually eventually liquifies and turns into an abscess. The surgical teaching is that dead tissue needs to be removed or else it'll cause more infection and badness. I am not a breast surgeon but I do a lot of operations on breast.
Hang in there It'll be a long slow recovery, but I wouldn't necessarily feel regretful for undergoing the procedure.
