Is your DIEP breast hard or soft?
I know that I have had some complications that make my case not the norm, but was wondering how hard or soft anyone's DIEP breasts are......I had a unilateral on 10/24 -- had a hematoma and infection, and although part of my breast is soft, I have a hard area on the right side -- don't know what it is.....and hoping it will soften up once I have finished healing.....(I still have an open wound from the infection which is being packed daily)
I see the PS again on Tuesday so will see what he says, but I am starting to become discouraged. The whole point of this surgery was to end up with a softer, more natural feeling "breast" -- and instead mine has had problems and is often painful and uncomfortable. I have not given up on getting a result, just starting to get depressed that everything is taking so long...the wound has become a little smaller since it was opened due to the infection, but it is still fairly deep (5cm) -- and I feel like I have weeks left of daily nurse visits!
