Reconstruction do over:(

I had tram flap reconstruction with the mastectomy of my left breast. I did it all at once because I wasn't supposed to have radiation. Well, after the surgery the cancer was worse than they thought so radiation was added to my regimen, so needless to say after 28 treatments my new breast is hard as a rock. Has anyone been through this? What did you choose?2

Hi Pam. I can't answer your question, as, I had a lumpectomy with rads. I wanted to say that I am so sorry that this happened to you. I hope someone on here can help you out. Have you talked to your plastic surgeon about this? Is it possible to replace your implants? I wish I could help..

Hugs, Lex
