I had mx and recon back in September. Started chemo end of October and wound would not heal, kept opening and leaking. Ended up that I had an infection in the implant which was removed in December. Keep an eye on your temperature and any redness round the wound.
I had mx last july (3rd breast cancer surgery to same side) and the wound did not stop leaking yellow fluid and close up until december. I was told it was due to tissue damage from old scar tissue and rads 6 years ago x
I had it after my biopsy. The minor injuries nurse gave me a pile of Stena Lady pads to soak up the gunge. I needed it too. The Doc sent some away to be tested for infection but it came back as clean.
Hi I had my second surgery on my breast two weeks ago. I have slight leakage from the wound. My surgeon says this can happen. There is no infection but I have had to get special dressings as normal ones cannot deal with the amount from fluid oozing out. My breast cancer nurse says this can go on for a while. Has anyone else had this problem. Any advice welcome please.
