Breast Reconstruction (Implant) - Nancebeth

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Mixed Tumors, Breast Cancer. Posted on November 4, 2012 View this journey (11 Experiences)

I needed to get my left implant replaced as it had deflated and pulled away from the chest wall. Apparently this is not uncommon in mastectomy patients. I had the surgery on Thursday, Nov 1 and stayed one night in the hospital. Came home Friday afternoon and was running a 101.5 fever. The fever broke last night and I feel a lot better today.
I am very sore and swollen and bruised but my pain is manageable. Compared to the radical bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction I had in February, so far this one is a breeze.
