Breast Reconstruction (Flap) - Mitzi

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 13, 2012 View this journey (9 Experiences)

The flap is a mess. Looks hideous and has ruined the muscles in my arm and back. This on top of everything was just overwhelming. I recovered from cancer but live with the horrible mess of the screwed up flap daily.
