Mastectomy - karenlbarton

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on November 4, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

I had a single mascetomy and not reconstructive surgery at the time. Unfortunetly I had an infection from the drains. Then I had another emergancy surgery and had an open wound during chemotherapy for 6.5 months. That was not fun, dealing with chemo, hair coming out, wound dressing change 3xs a week and a 3 year old. So I am a little gun-shy about reconstruction of the breast, I have a prostetic that works just fine.
