I will be undergoing a modified radical mastectomy of one breast in April and need to decide if I should have immediate reconstruction. I will have had four chemo treatments. The surgery will be followed by four more chemo treatments and radiation therapy. One of the surgeons I've seen recommends waiting for at least 10 months after radiation is complete so regeneration of healthy tissue can produce a better end result. Another surgeon feels it's better to reconstuct the breast immediately following mastectomy to avoid two separate major surguries, two hospital stays and the emotional trauma of living w/o one breast for a long period of time. I'm leaning toward immediate reconstruction. Please share your experience. Thank you!
