Re: Pedicle Tram Flap Results

My Ps said he doesn't like to do this type of TRAM flap due to these kinds of comlicationz. He said if a person has carried fat in the abdomen area for a long time, they seem to have the kinds of trouble you have experienced. It has something to do with the blood flow through the skin and fat. I have to have the TRAM flap from the shoulder on my right due to I do not have enough tissue left from surgery to support an implant. On the left it will be either the same or an implant. I had bilateral cancer on both sides with three tumors, no lump nodes, but very high reoccurance rates on the Onca Test. I hope you get some answers soon and get to feeling better even sooner. Prayers go out to you...
