Hi, Janice. Sorry to hear you've been having so many problems. I had a TRAM flap done, so no experience with implants. However, since cap contractures are an immune response to a foreign body, somehow it makes sense to me that your body would react the same way a second time. If this one fails, can they do a TRAM or LatDorsi flap instead? At least you'd be dealing with your own flesh, and not something foreign. I can't imagine going through all that over and over! What a mess, girl!
I guess that's not very positive, but it just doesn't sound like a very positive experience! I'm sorry!
Anyway, feel free to come here to vent. What are you doing with PT? I'll tell you, I asked about physical therapy after my TRAM, and they told me I wouldn't need it. Man, I wish I had known enough to insist on it. So I'm glad to hear you're doing that.
Take care, and I'll have my fingers crossed that this one goes better.
