i had to have the inflators removed on 2/14/12. my body rejected them. i got an external prothesis and it fits well. i love it because it's no pain and i'm comfortable with them. the plastic surgeon informed me that i could get inplants once i healed(approximately 3 months). i'm so afraid that my body will reject them and i will have unbearable pain. i will have my port inserted on 2/6/12 and chemo will start shortly afterwards. i will receive 6 treatments and 5 1/2 weeks of radiation. what shall i expect?
