Hi everyone, I haven't been on in sometime. Sorry!....
I have just been so busy. I finished my chemo on July 31, 13. Had my tissue expanders removed and permanent inplants put in on Sept. 6. At three weeks P.O. I noticed a small opening on the left side and begain to have drainage, a lot of drainage and then by Oct 8th my Left side had opened up to the size of a base ball and the inplant was exposed. Oct 10, surgery again, to replace the inplant and this time no glue or desolvable staples. My body don't desolve them properly and I feel that was what created the problem. I still have the exterior sutures. He said he was leaving them in a long time. So now it's Oct 21st and my right side has opened up about a 1/2 inch and I'm afraid it's happening all over again. The only difference is, there is hardly any drainage. I see the P.S. on Wed. Has anyone had this same issue. They said it isn't uncommon for you to have them open up and that they will close again and heal..... Would love your input.... Kathy
