I had a double mastectomy, but because I needed radiation, I did not have immediate reconstruction. I'm looking forward to reading the responses you get. Best wishes in your decision making. xoxoxo Lynn

Immediate Recon was not an option fgor me - I'm IBC. I had a unilateral 3 yrs ago next month (Oct 2009) and have never rgreted it. No recon - wasn't an option at the time. All BC is not the same.

Yes I had double mastectomy two years ago was 53 pre meno. My type of cancer frequently appears unnoticed in both sides and was in both as turned out. Infiltrating Lobular. Had recon immediately as only had chemo and no radiation. I personally am pleased it is done and just now taking Tamoxifen of which I am not a fan. In fact I need a fan now most of the time......... Good luck with your decision.
