Re: post mastectomy healing

Hi tattyaniajane,

 

Welcome to the BCC forum.  I'm sorry you haven't had any replies to your post yet.  I wondered if more people might see your question if you posted in the "Going through treatment/surgery" section.  I've attached the link:

Take care

 

Very best wishes

post mastectomy healing

Hi,

 

I am now 4 weeks post skin sparing mastectomy with immediate expander implant, I have just finished my 4th week of anti-biotics to prevent infection.  My surgeon is concerned that under the deep black scabs my skin has no blood supply to heal.  I have weekly check ups and have been told they won't know the condition of the skin until the scabs come off.  Has anyone else experienced this? I usually heal very quickly, how long have most of you found it has taken to scab off? Any info greatly recieved. Thanks
