Complications timescale

Post by LindaP on 11th February 2015, 12:21 am

As I understand it different complications will have different timescales. For examples some complications if they occur happen almost immediately after surgery while others like CC or rupture can develop at any time. I guess this means that you will be "safe" from some complications after a certain time. What I am trying to ask is what is the timescale for different complications?

I am wondering because of aftercare coverage. Which complications would I need to look to be covered in the short and long term?

Complications can happen at anytime after surgery, most can become quite evident quickly after op , where as cc & rupture can be sometimes be more long term complication.

Thank you. I think my question was a bit unclear. To be honest I'm not sure myself what I was trying to ask. I guess what I want to know is about the complications that happen as a result of surgery rather than the implants. Basically, how soon would you expect to notice the type of complications you get right after surgery? And how long would it take before you know you are "safe" from these complications?

The reason I want to know is partly because of aftercare policies but also to know how long after surgery I would need to stay within a reasonable distance from hospital in case there are complications.

There's no 'safe' time. You could get CC 2months after, you could get it 5yrs after. Some girls have no problems for years then out of nowhere they rupture. It's a risk you have to take I'm afraid. Obviously the longer the aftercare the better, but there's just no guarantees or safe zones

Thank you. I completely understand that something can happen any time. Are there any complications that you are more safe from after a while? I am thinking of things like infections from surgery.

Something like infections are more likely with an open wound, so while your scars are healing. That's usually about 8-12wks, so not soaking them and keeping them dry is key during that period. Id think the only reason you'd get an infection/rejection post wound healing would be due to something else, like a Staf infection or something. But then that would be true of any operation, not BA specific.

Thank you. I'm sorry if some of my questions are unclear and irrelevant. I'm just at a stage right now where I want to know everything there is to know.
