Dehiscence of Abdominal and Breast Wounds Following Diep Flap Surgery and Possible Link to Ehlers Danlos Syndrome?
Wounds started dehiscing at 2-3 wk post op.Told to Silvadine all wounds but ab eventually had to be packed. I'm 9 wks post op.Ab wound is 3 cm deep and 1 in long today, Was 3 in. prior..2/3 of right breast incisions had separated. I have history of adhesive allergies even with paper tape which has caused additional scarring. My daughter was diagnosed with EDS and genetic dr said that I was also suspect .Could this be my problem and are there precautions for stage 2 reconstruction to consider?
