Gosh I'm really sorry to hear that. You've been through enough! Good luck with further surgery. Xx

Re: Ld flap recon and lymphodema

Hi I was happy initially but quite quickly developed a capsular contraction so after having the failed reconstruction am now awaiting further surgery

Re: Ld flap recon and lymphodema

Hi Helen yes I had LD reconstruction 2 years ago after having lymphoedema for 1 year. It didn't make my lymphoedema worse it has remained the same just slight increased swelling following surgery which resolved after a few days. Hope this helps x

Ld flap recon and lymphodema

Hi I'm hoping someone has experience of this. I have lymphedema after my mastectomy last year. I think I would like it reconstructed but am worried about making it worse. Has anyone had ld recon when they have lymphedema also? Any advice greatly received!
