Has Anyone Suffered Post Reconstruction From Itching Underneath The Implant?

Has Anyone Suffered Post Reconstruction From Itching Underneath The Implant?

I am seven years out breast reconstruction and having four days of itching and pulsing tingling with no relief in sight. Seriously wishing I had just gone flat. I don't think there is enough education of reconstruction long term and what it means. I feel like I had no information and assumed since women had been doing this for decades the risk was low. I had saline which was considered safe at the time in 2015.

Please consider calling your surgeon's office, and let them know. Hopefully, they can check everything out and get you something that can provide some relief- itching, whatever the cause, is never comfortable! Gentle hugs!
