Pec tear during expander placement, anyone?
I had a mastectomy 4 wks ago, and during the expander (under pec) placement procedure suffered two tears to the pec muscle. It has been excruciatingly painful since, and any activity just aggravates it. There is no way I’ll be able to tolerate expansions, especially while dealing with chemo. I’m going to discuss having the expander removed at my next appointment. I would rather go flat than endure any more of this. Anyone else had tears to the pec during expander placement? Thanks.
