Had a skin sparing double mastectomy about three months ago. These (gas jugs) I mean tissue expanders are driving me crazy. My right side is still either bruised or something underneath the expander where the alloderm attaches to my muscle. Doc's don't seem to be worried, but i am very active and that area becomes pretty painful! Going through chemo now. Hopefully starting taxol today if my red count is OK.
I would love to hear from anyone else that has had any issues with tissue expanders and alloderm!!!!!
