I need some info regarding the transflap reconstruction. My "mom" had this procedure about 2 years ago and now she has a huge bulge on the right side of her abdomen. She went back to the plastic surgeon and he said it was due to a ten pound weight gainand that there was no longer any muscle there and it was normal. She is also in occasional pain, but she thinks that since the doc said it was normal, that the pain is normal too. I told her to get a second opinion because it doesn't sound normal to me. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about this? I really appreciate anything you can tell me. My "mom" also has a small lump on the side of her mastectomy(reconstruction) that the surgeon said was just fat, but he wanted to see her next week aftdr 7 pm. Hmm...should I be suspicious? Thanks for everything.
