Questions about Mastectomy with Tissue Expander.
|Asked||Publicly Submitted Question|
|2/29/2012||I had a double mastectomy with TE placement Feb. 1. I have had an okay time recovering, but am noticing that the skin underneath my entire right breast (the non-cancer side) is yellowing. From the incision scar on down. There is no sign of infection and the other side is the fair pink color I am used to. I have not had radiation. Is this common? Will it change back to pink?And what could be the cause?|
