I am undergoing reconstruction - 5 years after mastectomy. My plastic surgeon has suggested using a permanent chest expander and then saline implants. the good news is the expanders stay in place. Has anyone had this type done? I want to know about what I'll expereince afterwards. How long can I expect to be out of work? I was back at work 3 weeks after my frist one and want to know how the reconstruction will affect this.
