Mastectomy recovery was good and bad.
Incisions healed well.
I had drains in for 3 weeks and developed big seromas even with the drains . The left drain was bloody and repulsive the whole time. I became severely anemic and required IV fluids for nausea and dizziness lasting 3 weeks. I was basically in bed the whole time. My only pain was in week 3 when my chest Skin felt like I had a flaming bra on. Like Jack Jack in the movie “Incredibles”.
The day I finally felt better was the day before my reconstruction. Now the flaming feeling is gone. I only have incision pain at night. Nausea and dizziness came back with a vengeance. Hematocrit was 8 or 9. I V fluids helped and now I’m on iron supplements. Feeling better. Reconstruction appearance is not ideal where the skin stretched from seromas. She should have drained them. I have 2 extra breasts stuck to the side of my ribs 1/2 way between my shoulder and waist. I hope someone can help me.
