Hi all. I spoke with the surgeon and Meaghan is out of surgery and in recovery. The surgery ended up being a little longer than planned for some minor tweaks but the main focus of the surgery (to get the new skin from her back) went well. The one blip now is that the implant pocket had shrunk to the point that the implant could not fit without putting the new skin at risk. So unfortunately he had to put the expander back in. So down the road there will have to be the implant swap procedure again. Safety first.
So Meg will be bummed about that but at least no surgeries for awhile. And the expander process will move slowly to help ensure the future swap surgery is successful. So not the end of the road, but we are getting there.
Thanks to all of you for the support and well wishes. Know they are read frequently by both of us.
