While getting Teague dressed this morning he said his “stitches” hurt when we put on his shirt. I took a closer look and realized his silicon implant was actually protruding from the surgery site. I had a strong suspicion this meant it definitely had to be removed, regardless of the noticeable decrease in swelling and redness. We already had an appointment with the doctor within a few hours so we just left it alone. (For those curious what the implant looks like, see below)
The doctor took one look and added us to his surgery schedule on Thursday. He did comment that this made removal extremely simple. The bad news is this means Teague will need an additional surgery in the future.
