Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). Additional information has been requested and received. What is the procedure name? revisions to breast reconstruction and scar revision from diep mastectomy (mastectomy was (b)(6) 2014). What is the procedure date? (b)(6) 202-(b)(6) what date did the allergic reaction occur on? it started on (b)(6) 2021 and lasted over 25 days. Can you share pictures of your allergic reaction with us? i put two below, neither are great examples and both are towards the end when i was very scabby. Both are from the first week in (b)(6). I don¿t have any good pictures of it fully inflamed, pictures weren¿t on my mind at that time, stopping the pain was. If in your possession, may we have a copy of your operative report? not in my possession. Was there any medical or surgical intervention performed to treat your allergic reaction (product removed; re-operation; re-closure; prescription medication)? if so, please specify. The dr took the product off, i saw two dermatologist who were both baffled by the rash as it was spreading all over my abdomen, arms and face. If medication was required, please clarify if it was prescription strength. I was put on a medrol pack steroid that helped significantly with the itching. I was also given triamcinolone acetonide cream usp 0. 1% to put on the rash, and mupirocin usp 2% to put on the incisions. I also started taking vitamin a per the dr. I was also on a strong antihistamine that would make me sleep for hours and i took it round the clock so slept for the better part of two weeks when it was it most active and itchy. Can you identify the product code and lot number of the product that was used? no, but it should be in the surgical notes as i know the packaging number is written in the notes. What is your most current health status? i am mostly fine, though i do get flare ups above and below the incision area. I treat it with the cream. It hasn¿t been itchy, just red. Has prineo/dermabond or other skin adhesive been used in any previous surgeries or wound closure procedures? i do not know, but would assume something has been used. I have never had any issue with post surgical healing. I have unfortunately had many surgeries to date. My allergist is planning on doing skin patch tests in (b)(6). He said he is only able to get two of the three ingredients. Do you think you can help him get what he is missing so we can have accurate results? i can get his information to you or give you his. Additional information has been requested however not received to date. If further details are received at a later date a supplemental medwatch will be sent. Do we have your permission to contact your surgeon who performed the surgery, in the event would like to contact your surgeon for more clinical information to be used for a product quality complaint investigation? no product is available for return.
