DIEP FLAP SURGERY AND RECOVERY SUGGESTIONS
I will be having DIEP flap surgery in February.
I am 13 years out from ILC/ bilateral masectomy w/ silicone implants. I have struggled with BII for 4-5 years. Exhausting many specialists, knowing it was silicone toxicity I was struggling with the last 2 years, I finally had Explant surgery last October.i was scheduled for explant/ DIEP flap surgery for May 2024. I didn’t want to wait so I asked implants be removed and DIEP flap to be scheduled asap per healing. I am preparing at home for the best possible post op healing. is there a discussion forum here that someone can direct me to? My Plastic Surgeon suggested me to come here. I did find BC.org discussion board to be so helpful during my recovery during my diagnosis 13 years ago. Thankful!anyone have suggestions?
