Patients also aren’t advised of the possibility of lifetime chronic pain issues by their surgeons.
Robin Silverman

My physical therapist mentioned that most of her patients who’ve had implants under their pectoral muscle suffer from chronic pain. Those who chose the tissue transplant (DIEP/TRAM Flap) had other issues and were not chronic. This needs to be included in the education campaign. Thank you for your contribution Robin.
