I've been a really good sport for almost ten months now, but my patience is wearing thin...I have had 5 months of chemo, a bilateral mastectomy with expanders put in, and 6 weeks of radiation. There was a build up of fluid around the radiated expander which ended up in having to have the expander removed. Now, I have one side fully inflated and the other side concave and "bunched up" looking (and it's still draining). To top it all off, I have now broken out in hives but just in the breast area on both sides! My surgeon suggested I see my oncologist about it and my oncologist suggested I see a general practitioner. I feel and look like a freak - no wonder the plastic surgeon doesn't want to see me - I'm sure his cosmetic surgery patients are alot easier to work with.
