A friend of mine said her mother chose not to have recon over 25 years ago. And she loves it and has no problem with it. She went from a DDD to flat, it took care of her back and shoulder problems also. I am having recon, went from a DD/DDD to flat right now. I had to have one of my expanders removed already. I start chemo next week followed by radiation. Then after 6 months, PS said he could put an expander in, fill it and then 6 weeks later do the implants. I am considering not having it done, just let him take the other expander out and leave it all alone. Talk it over with your PS they have made a lot of advances in implants from when you had yours put in.
