Hi, I'm new to the network. Was wondering if anyone has had a Tram flap failure. Had double masectomy and only one side took. I previously had cancer 6 years ago and it came back. It was radiated and I was on Tamoxifen for 5 years, also had Lumpectomy. The doctors couldn't give me an answer as to why this happened. So I now have a reconstructed breast that had no cancer to begin with and a masectomy. Need to heal from this surgery and go for another surgery which we will be going in through the back this time. Very scared it won't take again.The recovery time takes so long, not sure if it will be worth it. I would be devastated if it fails again.
