I had a mastectomy 1 1/2 yrs ago, with immediate reconstruction, and a reduction of the other breast. Unfortunately, I developed a MRSA infection in the reconstructed breast, and after months of antibiotic treatment and additional surgeries, the implant was removed. I am now thinking of having reconstruction done, but am concerned about another infection. Has anyone had that experience and would like to share your thoughts? The plastic surgeon said he would be able to take muscle from my back, but would probably still need to use a small implant along with it. Thanks.
