I have had surgeries since March, 2010. We were recommended to do a tram flap after my diagnose of breast cancer DCIS. I agreed because didn't want to have breast implants and then revisit in 10 yrs. After my first surgery, I contracted a very bad infection in the incision, they have to clean up the area multiple times; from April to August 2010, and left it open wound for a space of three weeks.. They closed the incision again, and after that I had my first hernia surgery on September 2010. After that one, I had every year after, a hernia repair surgery and waiting at this moment for the decision of a new one. I'm really disappointed that I wasn't told about all the complications that this surgery can or might have. The only thing was mentioned if that I couldn't do any more sit ups and that to get out of bed will need to roll to my side and then push myself with my arms. They never told me that I will loose strength in my legs, or that I will get exhausted if I walk more that 5 minutes. Or that I would have this bulges in my abdomen all the time. It is enough with the pain of the arm and the underarm, after you have a mastectomy, but to not be able, to do ANYTHING is frustrating and debilitating. I can't bend down, or pick anything, I can't function in my household, I need help for everything, even to get up from a chair. It has changed my functionality and sadly for the worst. I hope I have all the information that I'm getting now, after I keep having my hernia repair surgeries. Before I couldn't find anything negative about this surgery (Tram Flap) and that is completely upsetting. No one mentioned the DIEP flap surgery, that would've been an alternative in addition to the transplants. WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT MORE SURGERIES? I don't think my insurance will approve any more, and more importantly I don't know if my body can handle another one.
