just a question, I noticed that for for years I have developed a pocket of fluid I guess under breast on top of first ribs (almost oval shape. Same area on both sides, doc says it’s normal, just wondering if anyone else has this?

!! I have something that looks like that as well. I'm only a year out from my dmx, and an still in the reconstruction phase. I'm having fat grafting this week and thought (and perhaps it is) remaining fat from the first round. It's only on the left side.

Can you massage it to get it to reabsorb?

yes just one side, if I lay down I don’t feel it really. I have had it for years. I think your right about just fat. I don’t think it will go away with massage.. I’m not sure how to get rid of it? I never finished my reconstruction after rads. I have the effected side flatter then the other. I just got tired of it. I probably should go talk to a PS about it and putting a larger one on flat side.

Your having fat grafting?? What is that and how does it work? thanks for your help
