Re: surgical wound opened: part of reconstruction

It's over 2 weeks now that my surgery opened up on my back & it is still painful, I can't sleep & I have to get it packed & dressed every few days. Has anyone else had this happen & how long did you take to heal? Thanks

Re: surgical wound opened: part of reconstruction

Thanks songbird. I had my appointment yesterday. They've packed it & given antibiotics. It'll mean a wider scar when it does heal. Never mind, in the grand scheme of things, not so bad.
Hope you're do I g OK.

surgical wound opened: part of reconstruction

I had my mx & immediate LD flap reconstruction 12 months ago. I had nipple reconstruction and a flap taken off my back 4 weeks ago. On Saturday, my back opened up - a out 2" long & very deep. Has anyone else been through this? I now have it packed & dressed & an appt to see my onc on Thursday. It seems to be never-ending at the moment.
