I have been reading your posts and want to share my story. I had bilat mastectomy, skin sparing, tissue expanders placement April 3, 2012. One week after my surgery was my first post op visit to the plastic surgeon. I met with one of the nurses who removed the surgical bra and announced that I was healing as I should. She told me to wear sports bras and sent me on my way. The next day, wearing a sports bra, I noticed the bra getting uncomfortably tight..and tighter..and tighter. It got to where I couldn't stand it any more, took the bra off to discover the right cup was very stained with a brownish color. It was too late by this time to call the PS office so I called first thing next morning....was told this was normal. Then the next day I notice the right breast is angry red and blisters are forming, again I call the PS office, talk to a nurse, she acts like this is no big deal. Just take the surgical tape off she says... BUT I'm thinking BUT this tape is holding my breasts together... I have three strips of surgical tape placed vertically down the center of my breast, centered over the area where my nipple used to be. I decide to go ahead and do as I'm told, get the the last strip of tape and hesitate. The sutures appear to be embedded in this last strip of tape and I don't want to screw up my plastic surgery and my new breasts. I call again, get a nicer nurse this time who tells me to get in the shower and with warm soapy water, gently remove this last strip of tape and I'll be OK. I do this and underneath this last strip of tape I discover to my horror that the sutures under the surgical tape have already given way, there's ~ an 1/8 inch gap has been exposed and is now rotting and squishy...then I get to the bottom of my breast which is BLACK !!! I call the nurse back and tell her what I discovered. She tells me I'll be OK...just soak gauze in polysporin and come to the office first thing Monday. So after a very long weekend, I go see the PS who acts like...oh...this is perfectly normal...HUH ?? Just keep doing what you're doing and come back in one week....HUH ??? WHAT??? I did as told until the more I thought it, the madder I got. Why should I have to wait for him to decide when HE wants to deal with this tissue necrosis ? I want this dead tissue GONE NOW!! The more I thought about I came to realize what didn't dawn on me when I first went for my first post op PS appointment. When the nurse took off the surgical bra, I already had breasts....at least B cup breasts...and it is NOW becoming apparent to me that this PS went ahead and pumped up the tissue expanders with enough saline that my new breasts are already B cups, the PS OVERFILLED the tissue expanders immediately at time of tissue expander implant !! What I thought, what I assumed was the tissue expanders were to be implanted as PLACE HOLDERS only and only after the new, delicate tissue covering my new breasts had healed THEN saline injections would start weekly, maybe 50cc's at a time. So he went ahead and filled me up, stretched the sutures beyond their capacity, initiating tissue necrosis. Well, all this PS has done after I called and told his office that I do not want to wait and want this attended to now, he cut out the dead tissue and I now have a large, gaping, triangle shaped HOLE in my new right breast. The left breast has a sickly yellow 1/8 gap down the middle of it as well but not tissue necrosis..... I ask them how will this heal ? Stuff the wound with a wet dry dressing they say....gauze soaked in saline covered with dry gauze..let this dry for 12 hours, then remove the gauze that is now dry which will remove any more dead tissue. I am told this will take weeks to heal... So, after it heals, I'll be left with an awful, huge scar ?? Ohhhh don't worry about that they say...we'll take care of it.... ???? I am so angry that all this has happened. It's bad enough to go through breast cancer, bilateral mastectomy, breast reconstruction, the pain of these tissue expanders, and NOW .... I look like a reject Bride of Frankenstein.... and I find out May 2 if I have to have chemo or not. Traces of cancer cells were found in the sentinal node pathology so I'm thinking, yes, I'll be getting chemo treatments. So, chemo will have to be put on hold until my tissue and HOLE in my breast has healed...?? I'd LOVE to sue this PS for substandard care, negligence, mental trauma, etc. I can't sleep at all, no matter what I take, I can't sleep.... WHY DID THIS HAPPEN ??
