I can not believe how painful the expander is. It feels as if my left lung is being pushed on. To take a deep breath really hurts. I had the expander put in on May 8th. My doctor has put 200cc in so far and wants to do another 50 cc on Tuesday. After each treatment I can't raise my arm for days. Then my doctor plans on leaving me like this for 2 months while my skin stays stretched. Augh. Has anyone else had this fun experience. I know it will all be worth it in the end, but since diagnois in Oct 02, the end just keeps looking farther and farther away.
