Hi carol lina
My messages keep going into spam, will have to sort this, It has taken over a year for every thing, I first had the right side mastectomy done with implant straight away, this had to heal, then in may if this year I had an implant to my left side to balance me up, then November I had my nipple created which dressing comes off Monday so fingers crossed it is ok then I will wait again for tattoo. I know it sounds a long process but you need to let your body heal in between everything I waited for nipple construction to allow my implant on left side to settle so they can match the rightsde new nipple hope that makes sense. It is a very anxious and nervous time when you are told you have breast cancer and you will find most of us have these feelings so you are not alone. This site has lots of help so use it as much as you can and don’t hesitate to contact your breast nurse, or help telephone no. Are you having double mastectomy? Will be thinking of you December what is your date? Also if you are able I have found walking everyday has helped plus I do a lot of physical activities and also downloaded the app called headspace which helps me sleep. Take care of yourself , sending you a big hug 💕xx
sorry not got back to you my messages keep going in spam box. Yes have had nipple construction on the 8th November, all went very well, going back Monday 19th to have dressing removed.
How are you doing? Xxx
Hi Carol Lina
Sorry have not replied, had trouble with thread, and the message ended up in my spam box. Answer to your question , I had right side mastectomy last September 2017 with no chemotherapy, I also had part reconstruction done at the same time.Have been having ongoing construction this year. Think I was more anxious than nervous, have had an amazing surgeon and his team have been excellent, had nipple construction on the Monday the 8th November all went well. Having dressing off Monday 19th. Hope all ok with you x
No I'm not on any medication. I had DCIS and because I had mx before it had spread anywhere I didn't need to have any further treatment or medication which I was very relieved about.
How is a nipple reconstruction done when it is delayed? Is it done under general anaesthetic?
thank you so much for replying, had lrightside mastectomy September 2017, with reconstruction , followed by implant in may of this year to left side to match other side now next stage nipple reconstruction, will be glad when I finally finish . Can I ask you wether you are on any other medication? Take care xxx
will be having surgery early November for nipple construction, would like to know if anyone else has recently had this done , and how successful it was . Does it look like a nipple.
