I had the surgery about 2 years ago.  My problem is that on my left side the nerves haven't all reconnected.  I had therapy and they told me as long as i work out my chest it should be fine.  I put on about ten pounds of muscle but the left side still looks weird.  The bottom half doesn't have feeling therefore from a side view the muscle looks really weird.  I wanted to know if there is some kind of therapy that can assist me in this problem.  I believe this problem occurred because my left side was bigger therefore i slouched more on my left side, i also feel a great deal of knots on the left side of my back.  It would be great if i could get some feedback. thank you.

how long did you wear your compression garment? do some parts of your chest feel like its glued to the muscle? do you have any pictures?

I cant figure out how to post a picture on here.  I cant make it small enough to add it as an attachment, and i dont understand the insert image ordeal.  Im going to keep trying to figure it out.

i think your results are fine, i don't think from a glance someone would noticed unless you mentioned it, i showed my girl your pics and she didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. i think you look fine, its better than having A cups right? my bruising is finally clearing up and my chest is starting to look smoother, but one of my nipples is sticking out about 1/2 inch :-\ i hope my chest turn out like yours.

Yeah im definetely glad its not like it used to be.  You probably formed some scar tissue in your nipple.  I have it in my right nipple and the doctor i saw said it wouldnt go away by itself, but I mean im just satisfied having a flat chest after so many years of not.  Are u still wearing the compression garment?

no i stopped after my first month, i talked to my PS and he was ok with it. he said i didnt bleed much during the surgery and he wasnt concern with to much swelling.
