Fay, I had my BMX with lat flaps and TE's in June 2009. I came out of the hospital after 2 days and had 6 drains in. My PS removed 2 drains each week and the last two came out 3 weeks after the initial surgery. My fills started a month after my drains were out due to scheduling issues. I had a fill every three weeks and I can honestly say I had no pain at all with them. I did have some tightness, but never pain. I did a lot of stretching that I had done with post mastectomy patients, since I work as the director of rehab. My exchange was in January and I am doing great! The exchange was a piece of cake and I was back to work in 2 weeks.
Feel free to PM me if I can answer any other questions. Good luck to you!
