Hi I am 27 yrs old, and I just had a bilateral mastectomy on 4/10 with immediate reconstruction. Tumor was 2.5cm, node negative. I am ER+/ and her2neu+. I will have 4 rounds of AC. The oncologist said I had close margins, and is suggesting radiation. I have started the reconstruction process with expanders with implants. Does anyone have any thoughts? I would like to know the percentages with and without radiation, as well as if my implants will be affected, and any other thoughts you have....
