Wound opening update

Saw my PS today. He restitched my wound by replacing a number of stitches. A painless experience. So no filling of the expanders.He did not like the fact that my range of movement (ROM) had not improved. So I have to attend physiotherapy for 3 days a week for a month. As my back and shoulder muscles are now in constant spasm. Lying, sitting or breathing deeply hurt a lot. He did not think the mastectomy exercises caused the rupture. He said I had thin skin. So I have to continue with the exercises and find a physiotherapist. The latter may take some time as I just relocated to a rural area.( I've been driving into the city for my appointments with doctors). He also increased my meds, so once they kick in I may have some comfort. So relieved the expanded was not compromised.
