I'm so fed up right now, I'm normally a strong person but here I am 6 weeks after some revision surgery to my breasts and tummy after reconstruction in December and I'm still not healing, bits of the wounds keep breaking down and it really frightens me as I'm scared the whole area will open up. I saw the nurse yesterday and she said my body doesn't like the sutures and they are breaking through the skin, I wish now I hadn't had the op I've had so many surgeries now over the past 5 years, including 2 reconstructive surgeries, firstly from the back and then from the tummy but I actually feel worse now than after those. I've just got my head around my secondary diagnosis and feeling thankful that I am 'living with cancer' rather than dying from it. I just wanted to get this surgery out of the way then have my nipple reconstruction and start getting back to some sort of normality.
Sorry for having a moan but I'm just having a tough time right now and feeling emotional.
Hugs to all you lovely ladies on here
