Breast Implants: Q&AAsk a Question
Afraid to Ask my Doctor Questions Related to Post-op Breast Surgery
I saw PS last Monday which was my four week mark. When I told him I was concerned about the right breast and that it is not dropping, he only looked at me and said "I'm afraid it's the bandeau for you so you can have the results you want by May." He then wrapped the bandeau around me and left the room telling me to schedule my next appointment for 2 months away. No explanation of why one breast has dropped and not the other, no reassurances that there is nothing wrong.
Should he have felt the breast or be looking for hard spots or where the breast implant is actually sitting? I am really very concerned that there is something else going on here. This is now my fifth week and still no change! My right nipple hurts and is darker than the other, and I have what lookes to be a bruise (across the right breast only) where the bandeau sits. Should I be concerned that I have some kind of infection, or fluid build up? How long should I expect to wear the band and see results?
I scheduled another appointment for tomorrow to ask more questions (I am afraid to ask him questions because he has made remarks like "Your questions bring me to believe you are seeking attention, and I worry about you."). So I am bringing a friend and written questions with me.
