51 yr. old. Had bilat 12/03. Massive pseudomonas and other infections within 3 wks & 7 wks.2 Emerg. surgeries to remove expanders. Drains never seemed to diminish (6 lbs tissue removed),had last drain out 2/27...massive amnts of antibiotics with horrible side effects. Now that I am "well", will this feeling of pressure around my chest ever diminish? Was told to wait 2-3 mo. before more surgery, need hysterectomy. Would like to do tummy tuck at same time (prev.3 C-sections) and install expanders at same time, but am terrified of same experience with infection etc. Any feedback/experiences similar out there?
Dear carme: Your experience is not common. Hopefully, in time, your discomfort will resolve. You will probably need have this discussion with your plastic surgeon to determine the right time and whether this should be combined with your hysterectomy. Hopefully, you will not have bad luck twice.
