Diane’s surgeries always makes me nervous, hopefully this is the last in a long series of procedures. The surgeon told me he trimmed the stratus and added a few suture points to tighten the pockets. He said all looks real good now, Diane should be pleased with her decision.

Diane was taken to surgery around 8am and I saw the surgeon shortly after 10am. The recovery time will be much shorter than the previous procedures since no muscle work was involved. There are no surgical drains to mess with either.

More later.

Diane is having surgery to take out some scar tissue that the surgeon thinks has formed on the bottom corner of one of the pockets of the internal “bra” that holds the implants in place.  The surgeon used irradiated muscle stratus to form them, the patient’s body grows tissue within and around the foreign muscle that eventually becomes part of the body.

A ribbon of scar tissue has formed and is causing irritation and pain on her ribs.  During the day her undergarments put pressure there and at night she has trouble sleeping on that side.  Massaging the area on the other side helped to keep scar tissue from forming but on this side it did not help as much.
