    It's been a year since my surgery and it took a month for the swelling, tightness and rash (from adhesive) to finally start healing. I have a tiny little fold of skin near my breast bone. I decided on No reconstruction so, your results could be due to the upcoming plastic surgery you'll need. I'd call my surgeon if I was feeling very uncomfortable. Take care

      Thanks for your comment. I just had another surgery to clean up the incision. Back to square 1. Sigh.
