The nasty one is under my left breast and I have a small one that seems to be healing under the right one. My PS has me doing a wet to dry packing which huts and bleeds whenever I have to change it, I am so depressed and feels like its never going to heal. My BR was done on 4/5/13 and was going ok until las Tuesday when this wound developed.

I'm so sorry. I've read that quite a few have had wounds open there. You may want to do a board search on open wounds. I had a small one and even asked the docs why can't they just stitch it back up, there were good answers there. Mine did finally close after what seemed like forever. It's almost like when I stopped obsessing about it it started healing. Now it seems like ages ago that it was a problem! Best wishes to you. Ps you could get a second opinion, and or ask the docs here!
