Has anyone ever had an infection after the implanted that was cured with antibiotics and didn't require surgery?
My incision appears to be healing well three weeks after surgery, however a few days ago I began experiencing pain in my glands in my neck and armpit on the same side as the ICD. I called my Primary Care Dr. and she prescribed antibiotics. She said if the pain isn't better in two days call my cardiologist. I felt relief the first day. On day two of meds. Will the antibiotics be enough or does an infection always lead to surgery and remove all?
