I was led to believe I would have pretty normal looking breasts. They have always looked horrible because of this one area.
Dr. Keegan was my plastic surgeon immediately following my double mastectomy. I loved him However at an office visit shortly after surgery I was slowing pulling up my sports bra because the mastectomy was still fresh and the attending nurse got impatient and pushed up my elbow abruptly. The pain was incredible. That was 10 years ago. My doctors since then believe the muscle was torn and to this day I struggle with implants because that area huts and builds up scar tissue. T Finally after 4 redoes and thousand of dollars I'm having the implants removed and won't ever try again because the doctors keep promising they can fix the area but never do. I hope he fired that nurse by now.
I can never prove the two are related but that same spot that I felt that incredible pain that day is the same spot that bothers me everyday..
