Breast Reconstruction (Flap) - JudithCST

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on January 23, 2013 View this journey (4 Experiences)

I started my reconstruction on the same day as my mastectomies. I had drains for a year, and several infections requiring hospitalization due to a persistent seroma that would not go away. It's been over two years since my surgeries and I'm finally started to feel more like myself again, I still have more corrective reconstruction to do, but I am in no hurry at this point. Lots of complications from this reconstruction. I wish every day that I had never done it.
