My mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
She recently underwent a radical mastectomy, having a skin graft taken from her thigh. She has told us that she has a 3-inch hole underneath her armpit where the skin graft is.
Through research I found out that sometimes small holes are present in skin grafts for drainage, but I personally wouldn't call a 3-inch hole "small".
Is this normal?Log in to post a reply
