Just got back from seeing my plastic surgeon after reconstruction surgery
I just got back from seeing my plastic surgeon as I had more reconstruction surgery on Friday the 22nd and all looked good Monday but yesterday my pad was full of blood and I got scared called my Dr and went this morning. And when I was taking my bandages off the pad again was soaked with blood along with a large blood clot. I was so scared and I was crying. My Dr came in took a look and some of my stitches came out so he put 5 stitches in and there’s still a small part that’s open but it’s not that bad he said and they put stiritape on it and new pads with my sports bra. I had to have my implant removed and I have a new inscion underneath my left breast. So it’s not the same scar that was used during double mastectomy and a few other surgeries. He said I should be good now but I worry about infection because I bled once before and not long after I had an infection and was in the hospital for 4 days after begging to go home but on 10 days of strong iv antibiotics that I had to do my own infusions and was not fun. Anyone else have any complications with their surgeries?
