I am 40 years old and am just wanting opinions from anyone that has not had any reconstruction. I have had problems with my expanders, right had surgery 2 weeks after mastectomy in Sept., in April had staph infection after 30 days of meds. Left side was removed in March because the expander was coming out. I am afraid the right side is so thin it could do the same. I am having a hysterectomy this summer first, this is my priority! PS suggested a latissimus dorsi on the left because if the thin skin. I am so tired of surgery. My husband told me to take out the right so we can just enjoy our lives. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life! I know this is nothing compared to the cancer fight that we all have been or are going through but I just need some thoughts from someone who has been through it.
