scar tissue after mx

I had bc in 2008 age 34 and had wle, snd, rads, tamoxifen, zoladex, oopherectomy, exemestane.


6 years later in 2014 it returned in same breast. Had mx and on letrozole , plus alendronic acid as osteopenia from hormone treatment too.


mx scar took 5 months to close and had 2 infections. I was told this was due to 3 surgeries same area plus rads damage from 2008. 


Almost 2 years on whole area still tender and so tight across side and chest. I was told from scar tissue and rads damage. But now surgeon wants to do a ct scan  to check area. Anyone know what he is looking for and if this sounds normal?!


Also talking about expander to help with tightness. Anyone got experience of this?


many thanks in advance x
