Re: post radiation reconstruction

My wife had a similar rapid growth tumor. She had a left side mastecomy with very little tissue left. Radiation insured there would be no 'strecth' left. She had DIEP flap (stomach) 5 weeks ago and the results are outstanding. She's very happy with her tummy tuck/reconstruction. The pain factor was nothing compared to the mastectomy so she's doing well now. It's so great to see her proud of herself when we go out. It's a wonderful change and you have a lot to look forward to.
