Does a yes, with caution from the psychologist make it likely the top surgeon is more likely to turn you down

I got a yes, with caution because she is worried that i am at high risk for post op depression because of my ptsd (hospital based). There is a chance that i will get turned down by the surgeon because of my health condition crps. It is bad but stable so i am hoping that since i am willing to take the risk that he will. There is also the fact that i wont be able to wear compression stockings at all (cant wear anything on my legs) and i am worried about the binder (compression is really bad for my condition)

That sounds a bit positive Sam. I know that mastectomy patients have to wear some type of compression bandages for a short time after surgery, but after that, binders would not be required for you anymore.
They might be able to tape the bandages to prevent a full upper torso compression. I take medication to prevent for me the need to wear compression stockings, some kind of meds may help you, too.


Good Luck
Linde

you wear taple over the wounds, sponges pressed tightly over the grafts, bandages and a binder. after a week that all comes off and you just havetape and a binder. you keep that on for 3 to 4 weeks. this is all for swelling and thesponges to help thegrafts attach

I say go for what you want. If it goes well, fantastic. If it doesn't happen (boo) then you know you did what you could to make things happen. There are risks with every surgery. There is also powerful motivations behind why we seek out the surgeries. I wish you luck, Sir, let us know how it turns out.
