    this is what makes a I&D complicated

    The lesion of foreign body is larger than 2.0 cm
    the lesion requires packing or insertion of a drain
    the lesions will require re-draining or insertion of a drain
    the lesion will require re-draining during the global 10 post op period

    hope this helps
