I am having reconstruction done soon. My radiation burns were so bad that I had to postpone a week of the treatments out of my 7 weeks of treatment. I even had the expanders put in during my bilateral mascetomy, yet got infectons so I had to get them taking out. My radiated skin is so tough and no amount of exercise seems to loosen it up much. So I looking into the lat flap type surgury now. Just curious if anyone who had to go through radiation is happy with their reconstruction, and if not is it because it looks very deformed or not right. I'm not expecting it to be perfect just want to know how those or you who have gone through it feel about the outcome.
