I am scheduled for lap band surgery in two days. I have been on antibiotics for two days for a dental infection. It will have been 5 days of antibiotics by day of surgery.
What are the risks and statistics of problems in a someone that has an infection pre-surgery?
I have been told the band being an implant could be open to infection, but can’t find any information the what has been documented in the past.
Is it a serious risk to proceed before my medicine (antibiotics) has been completed?
