Has anyone had their stitches open after a number of weeks. I'm 5 weeks post op and on one side the wound is opening a little. I think it is because of my mastectomy exercises. My right arm's movement has been compromised. So I have to do arm exercises every few hours to get my range of movement back. Plus the expander underneath feels alot tauter than normal. I'm putting iodine ointment on the incision and I see my PS Monday. But, I'm curious if this has happened to anyone else. It's just weird because the
incisions on my other breast look so good and the scar is healing up nicely.
