I had a WLE with therapeutic mammoplasty just over 4 weeks ago and have been doing well since apart from one small area which doesn’t seem to be healing properly. It is the T junction of the vertical scar and the round the areola scar. There seems to be a tiny triangular gap which now looks indented and black. Today it has started to feel sore and slightly throbbing in this area.
Last week my surgeon told me to start massaging bio oil on my scars but I have avoided doing it on that area after the first time because it made it sting and feel like it was burning for ages afterwards. I thought it was setting down but today it seems worse. Does anyone else have experience of this and any advice about helping it to heal? I tried ringing a BCN today but the phone rang out for 15 minutes with no answer so I gave up. Tried my GP but after again being held in a phone queue for ages was told I needed to contact my breast care team. I will try them again tomorrow but would be grateful for for any advice or sharing of experience from anyone who has experienced something similar.
