I had my breast reduction surgery on September 26, 2012. I researched all the surgeons that my insurance company allowed me to see. I spent weeks getting information on each doctor, narrowing them down one by one. I chose and met my doctor during 1st my consultation and I was very comfortable with him and he was very knowledgeable. He had advised me that I was a perfect candidate for this surgery and he would bring my breast size down to a full D or D D. (I'm 5'7, 212 pounds and originally had a breast size of a 40G) My insurance company approved my surgery and I was so happy. Surgery started and the 09/26/12 at 9:30am. I woke up at 2pm and PS said things went well and he removed 4lbs from each breast. He did say there was tension on the left breast but, it would be fine. Well, it was FAR FROM BEING FINE!!!!
My doctor claimed my surgery went well but, it didn't.
Week One was terrible my breast were EXTREMLY swollen and I didn't have drains. So, there was no where for fluid to drain and very liitle came out of the incisions.
Week Two still swollen and my incision on the left breast opened due to the tension. I also have skin breakdown under my breast. I had been calling my doctor and was being told to just keep it covered and the wear my ace bandage. I also sent picture of my breast but, he did nothing for me (keep in mind, I'm in pain). During this time my left breast is falling apart and it looks and smells nasty. I kept calling my doctor and finally I just went to his office. The visit was pointless because he looked at it and covered it with non-stick telfa (that still stuck to the wound and I was ripping off more skin). By the end of week 2 most of the skin below my left breast was GONE!!!! Since my doctor hasn't told me how to care for it. I have spent hundreds of dollars on mdical care items. I have been putting sterile strips on the incision to try and save my nipples.
Week Three - Monday October15, 2012 I went to my Primary Doctor and he freaked out and called Dr. Mountcastle. My PS had me come in on Oct 19th. He looked at it and said "Why is my work falling part". He cover it back up and said I'll have a home nurse come out to see you. Home nurse came yesterday and today and she was shocked. She spoke to my PS and he told her he removed almost 5lbs (he told me 4lbs) Anyway she was a major help because she cleaned the wound up and explained how I need to care for it SO, HOPEFULLY I'M ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY.......
I'm starting to come to terms with that fact that...

My Doctor: Timothy Mountcastle, MD
Dr. Timothy Mountcastle seems to be a very nice and kind doctor. I felt comfortable with him when we meet and he assured me that my surgery would be successful and I would be happy with the results. However, that was not the case and I am unhappy and in pain. It would be nice if my PS was a better communicator. I just wish he would have taken time to explain to me what happened during surgery and what went wrong and how to correct it now. I just want to heal and I don't want this result to happen to anyone else!!!
