So sorry you find yourself in this position especially at your very young age. I also had delayed reconstruction with implant unfortunately it hasn't worked for me but I know lots of women it has worked for. Go with your gut instinct and if it feels right you should go for it. You will get lots of support on this site so come on as much as you need to and ask any question you need help with. My thoughts are with you take care xx
I'm a 22 yrs old primary breast cancer patient awaiting for genetics results next week. I've been suggested a bilateral mastectomy if it turns out I'm a carrier and I'm considering a delayed reconstruction afterwards with implants (too skinny for flap reconstruction). The reason I don't want an inmediate reconstruction is that I still have to go through radiotherapy after the surgery and I've been told it can damage the implants.
Could I please ask people who've been through similar situations about their experience with the reconstruction process?
Thank you very much and have a good end of the weekend
