Hi to all. I'm seeing my breast surgeon on Monday to talk about reconstruction and possible mastectomy on the other side. I had my first mastectomy and nodal clearance in June 2014 and had a skin saving implant put in at the same time so I have skin there already. I've decided that I would also like to have the other breast removed as well. Has anyone got any advice on the type of reconstruction may be best for a bilateral mastectomy? I'm worried that the shoulder flap on both sides would be too much as I already suffer from pain in that area. The idea of the fat being taken away from abdomen is appealing but it is a longer recovery. Decisions decisions xx
