Today is 14 day's passed my surgery date to have the expander placed inside my chest in preparation for an implant and hopefully the return of a breast I lost in 2007. I went back to the surgeon today to have the expander filled with more fluid which is necessary to stretch the skin. Boy was I nervous, truly it was not as bad as I had imagined. My skin had loosened up enough to accommodate 200 cc's more of fluid which gives me a grand total to date of 400 cc's of fluid. I have to admit that this 400 cc's of fluid has given me back the start of my cleavage and I am thrilled! It was really rather funny because I was wondering how the surgeon knew where to stick the needle so he could add the fluid. I decided to ask him and he said he uses a stud finder like our men use when they are hanging things on the walls for us. LOL I am afraid I busted up laughing! Once that was over it was down to business as the doc used the stud finder to locate the metal disc where the fluid would be injected. Unfortunately being the person I am I neglected to hold still and messed up the whole procedure, way to go RE! Now the doc had to re-use the stud finder (I really just like to use "stud finder" :-) ) once it was relocated I had to have another shot to numb the area then the procedure began again. Let me tell you that an odd thing occurred with the insertion of fluid in the expander. I had fully expected to have pain in front since that is where my expander is, ha guess what...my pain is in my back just beneath my shoulder blade. My surgeon has explained to me it is because there are many nerves that run from the breast area to the back area where I have been having unpleasant sensations. He noted that most likely it is only temporary, time will tell. Truly so far I feel it has all been worth it and I am will keep you all updated on my progress from speed bump to breast.
