What is the longest word you can make that is mostly made up of affixes (prefixes and suffixes)?

For example,

Retestings

would work, but it's not a long word.
The word has to have only one root word, and multiple affixes.
There is no right or wrong answer to this question. I just want to see how long of a word you can make.

antidisestablishmentarianism is a long one (28 letters)

Or its longer form,

antidisestablishmentarianistically (34 letters)


The root is "establish"

Prefixes: anti-, dis-

Suffixes: -ment, -ary, -an, -ism/-istically
