Hi all 

I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction with implants on 1st September, my left side has healed beautifully, but I have poor healing on the right side. It’s not very big ( only 3cm ), however, Ive now got to have more surgery to correct this Disappointed the nurses have warned me that it might not heal still after surgery… worst case situation is that they will remove the implant. It’s making me very nervous, has this happened to anyone else ? 


  • Hi Bert83

    Welcome to the forum and I am sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and that you have poor healing on the right side.  While it hasn't happened to me I noticed that you haven't had any answers yet so I thought I'd reply to you to welcome you to the community.  This reply will move you to and top of the discussion.  Hopefully someone will be along shortly with an answer for you.

    Wishing you the best of luck with the further surgery.

    Best wishes
