Thank you Linda Still no radiotherapy, though fingers crossed it'll be 23rd September. Going in tomorrow morning for 'planning' which I think is the 3d scan and tattoo. Boob is much better, though wound not fully closed, but its much more superficial, so I'm really hoping in 12 days it'll be fully closed over. And then hopefully I can exercise also, as doing nothing isn't good for my mentally or physically! I just want to move onto the next stage.

I had theraputic mammoplasty done 8 weeks ago and I’ve had wound breakdown and the “t-junction” is still not closed over and therefore my radiotherapy is delayed. Again. I also reacted to the internal sutures and they kept being pushed to the surface which kept wounds opened and opened new ones my boobs are/were very large 34HH (!) and the one that’s been operated on is now significantly smaller and very perky, Which is great but I’m still concerned about the wound not closing over. My surgeon says it’ll happen soon and says I don’t need to see him now for 3 months but my radiotherapist doesn’t think I’ll quite be ready I have started taking tamoxifen. No side effects to date my cancer is/was grade 2 invasive Ductal, 3cm, not in my nodes and all margins clear I’m starting to feel like it will never close over and a bit concerned that my treatment is delayed im not allowed exercise at all, no baths, obviously no booze, no massages, so all form of stress relief isn’t available. Anyone else experience wound breakdown?
