I am not a medical expert, so my advice is from a layperson perspective.Wounds that have not healed after two years are in a chronic phase. One reason could be a compromised immune system. It is good that you have changed your diet because diet is pivotal to health. Still, unhealthy ingedients are sometimes included in supposedly "healthy" foods. For example, corn and soy are two crops that are largely genetically modified. Some experts believe GMO's can result in undesirable health consequences. Yet, corn and soy are often deemed "healthy." If a soy or corn product does not indicate non-GMO, it probably is GMO. Therefore, read ingredients, even "healthy" crackers, baked goods, and snacks could contain soy lecithin, soy oil, canola oil, and vegetable oil (all of which are likely genetically modified unless otherwise stated).Finally, I agree with tsanche. I know this is an older post, but please get a second (and even third) opinion. It is always best to be as thorough as possble. Good luck!

He insists that it will heal after TWO years of having problems? No matter how good a surgeon he is I would get a second opinion. Have you had a chance to talk about it with your gen. practitioner?

I had breast augmentation done in 03'. At first the it healed nicely. I did some heaving lifting and it cause an infection in the breast causing the wound to open. After being treated with antibiotics the right breast healed while the other didn't. I was given more antibiotics and the breast closed. I then suffered from a type of skin bacteria (similar to eczema) that formed all over my body. It seemed to attack the wound on my left breast reopening it. To this day (05')I am having problems with the left breast. It has closed but the skin looks thin. I have change my diet and multivitamin. The skin doesn't seem to want to heal.My plastic surgeon insists it will heal with time. I disagree. Any suggestions?
