Title: 5 months post-op and no change! Pls help
Post by: april24th2007 on September 27, 2007, 12:11:10 PM
Has anyone had to wait longer than 5 months before they begin to see results?
I'm so worried.  I've bought more gel and started wearing the compression vest again.

When I sleep in the vest, there is slitght change in the morning.  But after on ehour, its back to normal (like before)?

I had glad removal. I'm 5'9, 150 lbs.  I had puffy nipples only no fat.

Please help..

Ah I see youve got scar tissue their then ... probably going to need a cortisone injection to help break it down.

My right handside has a nice little chunk of scar tissue that I can feel ... its gone in the morning but after an hour of removing my compression vest its their again.

Im only about 2 months post op tho.

Hi.  Thank you very much for your reply.  I wasd really worried that I would have to get another surgery.  this could be the best news I've ever gotten. 
But I need some more help from you.  I have no idea what scar tissue is??  How do I tell I have it?  There is almost no scar visible on my nipples.  And when I push down on my puffy nipples it feels like almost nothing..like air or something.

So I would be very grateful to you if you could please elaborate on this.

Also about how you dealt with it.  Thank you very much.
