Hi All, I know we all experience different pains etc but what are your thoughts on having these expanders filled? Only had mine inserted 2 days ago and already worried about when they'll be filled lol.I had bilateral mastectomy 8 weeks ago now due to BRAC1 gene (preventative) and I had instant reconstruction, unfortunately my left scar came open and I was then returned to theatre to have my implant washed out skin cut down and reinserted, 2 weeks later my right side came open, very frustrating so myself as consultant made the sensible option of exchanging my implants for expanders, hopefully giving my skin chance to heal. Fingers crossed they start to heal! Look forward to chatting to you ladies about experiences and gaining support, hard to talk to people sometimes especially people that don't get out situations.Izzy x
