Could the Dr. Have Scored the Pocket Too Deeply?
I had bilateral mastectomy & reconstruction beginning in Dec. 2011.Within days of implant surgery I developed blisters on 1 side & my skin was scapulated. Eventually this broke into a huge hole & the skin & muscle were gone. I am healing for three months & the Dr. says I may need the expander put back in & some kind of support as the muscle is gone. Is it customary to score the inside pocket & was 2 wks after my last fill of the expander too soon? Thank you
