Sorry for second question very similar. How long before you could drive after exchange surgery? Also, my toddler is super rough with me and I keep having visiins of pulled stitches *even dreamt about it* and I'm freaking out. Do they heal faster than they did after mastectomy? I know I can ask surgeon but she is not me , never healed from it before with a toddler in tow
There would be more area to heal I would think after a mastectomy. But you will still have that suture line. Some people heal quicker than others. I expect your previous experiences would be your best guide. Gals is she going to have anymore than an incision to remove a prosthesis and slip a new one back in. Will they be putting in another expander to make room for a final prosthesis or will they be putting in your final prosthesis? Basically those things are put in a pocket the surgeon has created or creates to put the posthesis in. I hope this all makes some sense. I have not yet experienced this and maybe someone who has can give you a better patient perspective. Wish I could be of more help.
