Next week I will be having this surgery and once more want to ask for any and all input. I had a bilateral last February with immediate reconstruction. Like others, I had problems, ie infection resulting in removal of both. On the right side, the implant was taken out in May and there is still a nasty hole there. I really have no option but to reconstruct, and my Dr does not do Tram flap. I would like to get some idea of what to expect. Having gone through chemo and radiation with few ill effects, I am trying to be very optimistic. Surgery is going to get me that much closer to what I think of as my normal life, and I am kind of excited. Perhaps that sounds strange, but walking around with an open wound on my chest has not been very pleasant. So thank you in advance for any of you that have had this surgery and your experiences.
