Should I worry? I'm almost 3 weeks post-op for a unilateral mastectomy including immediate reconstruction with an expander. My drain is out and I've noticed a small "squishy" bump at the top of the breast. Could this be fluid retaining in that spot?

    Yes, it is probably just some fluid but show it to your doctor when you go back to have your fluid expansions done. I am sure it is nothing to worry about and will start to go down soon. Good luck with it all.

    I'd recommend asking your doctor. But I had the tissue expanders as well, and my odd "squishy pockets" we're the expander that we're just a little flappy in small places since I wasn't yet fully expanded. Best wishes!
