    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Very uncomfortable with drains and engorged feeling in Breasts. I thought I would have less aches and pains. Had 4 drains and last one taken out after 14 days. I wish I had prepared myself with more pictures of what normal reconstruction looks like in the days and weeks following surgery. I have needed reassurance from my medical team often.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree

    Breast Implant infection in radiated breast 6 wks after surgery

    Oh No

    I had sudden signs of redness and warmth. I felt very sick within a few days. I had the implant removed. It will be a few months before I can have it replaced:(
