I had DCIS and squamous cell carcinoma on the nipple 11 years ago. I received a modified radical mastectomy with no lymph involved. I was not offered reconstruction. I have gotten very tired of a prosthesis since I am in the middle of menopause and the hot flashes are sometimes unbearable. I am wondering if I am foolish for having this surgery after such a long time? Are there others that have had this reconstruction done after waiting so long? Did you decide on a tram or an implant? How did you do post surgery? Thanks to anyone who can help me!
