Hi there, just looking for confirmation that all is normal after my surgery!!!
I am 2 weeks after a DIEP Flap reconstruction on my left breast - is it normal to be very swollen?? I'm home now but just about walking around a little as my tummy is very tight and that appears to be where all the pain is. All drains have been removed and I've been back to the dressing clinic already and am going again tomorrow. My PS seems to be happy enough but he may have to do a small procedure where some of the blood vessels didn't take but that will be in a few weeks time.
My breast looks double the size of my normal breast and I'm just wondering if that is normal? Or am I being very impatient!
