I had a mastectomy & TRAM reconstruction in September 2017 & have been on the waiting list for reduction & uplift on my good side. I had a call last Thursday & I’m going in on Monday!
Saw the consultant yesterday & he may do some lipofilling to my reconstructed side as I had some fat necrosis (He will decide when he examines me in theatre - I assume because he can be rougher without hurting me!) He said I need compression garments for 2 weeks, he gave me some leaflets which are expensive but the senior registrar said cycling shorts in a size smaller than I would normally wear would do just as good a job.
Anyone had similar op? What did you wear?
I’ve been told liposuction is v painful & bruising is very colourful!
