Aug 3, 2018 · Mastectomy and breast reconstruction pros and cons? in Breast Cancer

I had my surgery 2011. Had a trams flap just because I would like to have my own body materials than anything foreign in my body but that is not what happened. The Breast tissue died. I had to have implant anyway. My breast is actually okay but my stomach that they said was suppose to work out like a tummy tuck. The mesh collapsed and I had to have it replaced two more time from the fist one. I since still feel like my stomach is pushing out. I swell if I stand on my feet like I am 9 months pregnant. The mesh kinks and I haven't felt good since I had this. I also don't have feeling from my waist down since the opened it so many times. So of course I always enjoyed bedroom time but now no feeling. I just wandered if anyone had this experience. I should have just do that the implant. Thanks for the reply.

Jul 20, 2018 · Mastectomy and breast reconstruction pros and cons? in Breast Cancer

I had breast cancer in my left breast. Decided to do a trams flap surgery. I have regretted the decision every day since. My breast is great but my stomach has given me trouble. It feels as if it is pushing out from the inside out most of the time. I have swelling almost ever day. I look like a 55 year old that is pregnant. I have no feeling in my stomach or cannot feel anything when I go to the bathroom. I have to physically look to make sure I am done urinating. Would love to have my feeling back so that I could enjoy sex again. Mine was done in 2011 and because the mesh collapsed and I had to have three surgery to remove and add another mess to my stomach hoping it would be better. That is definitely why I have no feeling in most of my body. I do have discomfort in my left side. It is very discouraging can not do hardly anything for long. Have to rest seems like I am tired all the time. Have discomfort in my right side because it seems like it Kinks. I too was told that it would be like I had a tummy tuck and it is not at all like this. Frustrated most of the time.
