Learning About Breast Cancer
Yes, tissue expanders are very uncomfortable. Take whatever you need to make it easier for you to cope with. It will all be over before you know it. I have had my expanders in for eight months, they are still a little uncomfortable at times but not too bad. I am just waiting to go back into hospital in a couple of weeks to have them removed and replaced with larger expanders, both my doctor and myself were not happy with the size I ended up with so I am just about to start all over again but it will be worth it.
