Delayed wound healing
Hi all, I have a question concerning a wound. I got the BR on march 24th. (It's my second breast reduction, I had one at 15 years old) Its now been two weeks post op, after the first week of surgery I had steri strips on the incisions and my PS removed the steri strips (a week and a 1/2 post op) and saw the two little places where it doesn’t seem to heal and told me it was going to be fine he was not worried. BTW my PS is a 3 hour drive from here… Then I got a bit worried because two days after the little hole seemed bigger (kind of scared the breast will fall and don't want to go thru an operation again!!) I know it's silly but couldn't help the thought. So I went to the ER, he said the white in the picture is totally normal that's the fat of the breast and that's what is going to close the breast it's the healing of the skin. That reassured me. He put a new steri strip between the two little wounds and said I would be fine. My question is if anybody had this issue, I saw that some have but there is no photos attached I just want to make sure these will heal and how much time does it take? I am off work for a month and I am anxious to see if it will take weeks, months and after does the wound look awful? BTW the other breast is healing perfectly that's why this is so frustrating ... I am 28 and in perfect health ... never smoked.. I take showers twice a day and apply new gauze... Any advice would be appreciated! I am worried and stressed out... ugh! Thanks!!! Update: Went to my family doctor this afternoon she couldnt look at the wound because of the gauze that was stuck there and she didn't have saline on hand. She still prescribed and ointment so the gauze doesn't stick in the wound. I just want to know if she's not the PS will I still be okay? He advice seems good I mean she's still a doctor.
