Did I Over Do It?

Did I Over Do It?

Three weeks out of surgery tomorrow. I had to go back to the doctor today to get some anabiotic‘s. I have a small travel agent business and I’ve been referring my customers to a friend of mine. Today I had a good customer wanting to re-book a trip she couldn’t take in 2020. So I was on the computer for about 2 1/2 hours. Unfortunately my Mastectomy was on my right side, and now I am a little sore. My doctor didn’t give me any exercise to do at home so basically I haven’t been using that arm. Did… read more

Implants Flipped

Implants Flipped

I have some how flipped my implant again, does anyone know a way to prevent this? I know very odd but I am tired of being the odd one. I am the 1 in 8 with breast cancer the 10% with a mutation which is a odd one so 2% of those 10 and now the 5% who flips implants. So tired of being special, just want to be normal and boring.

Raised Incision 1 Week After Surgery Dermabond

Raised Incision 1 Week After Surgery Dermabond

I’ve been looking all over the Internet and haven’t found an answer. I had a Mastectomy on one side six days ago. The site was covered with dermabond. Incision was flat and nice until I woke up this morning and noticed parts of the incision site are raised and red. Should I be concerned? Should I call the doctor? Thank you for your help

A MyBCTeam Member said:

So glad they took care of that quickly! Hopefully, the antibiotics will do their thing, and everything will be cleared up soon!!
