Peau d'orange

November 12, 2018 - 13:12

Hi all. Has anyone experienced peau d'orange on their breast with implant reconstruction. Have an appointment tommorow to have it checked. I am nearly a year post surgery.Thought it might be capsular contracture which i can deal with but am freaking out now because did the worst thing and googled it and its all about inflammatory breast cancer which has just added to my stress level. If anyone has experienced this symptom and can tell me their experience i would appreciate the insight. Thanks

Thank you for your post. I am sorry to hear of the worry and stress you are under at the moment. If you would like to speak to a nurse, please call us on the nurseline on 1800 200 700. Remeber when you use google, it is a very general and broad outlook and not necessarily applicable to your situation. I hope you get some reassurance from your medical appointment today. Please call the nurseline after if you would like to speak to us.

Best wishes,

Cancer nurse
