thanks Mel - I had read your previous post and you had mentioned LD flap so I just assumed that was what you had eventually had - there was me thinking you must have had a really big back muscle - it makes sense now - thanks

Mel - I agree - people think that because you look fine from the outside that you are ok and back to "normal", not realising the pain that you can go through for years after. I had an LD flap, but I still had to have a small implant too, as the muscle wouldn't be big enough - I had actually assumed that was the norm - but maybe not! Can the flap be sufficient to create a "whole boob"? My recon was done at very short notice though - 30 mins - so maybe they didn't have a lot of time to work it out! I am a bit confused now - let me you what your surgeon suggested about this, in a PM if necessary. Thanks

Just feel lucky that there are people out there that understand, because after the initial diagnosis, you then feel a loneliness that noone else can understand. I have had 2 lumpectomys that didnt work, and am now on countdown to mastectomy, and tummy tuck, which some people have actually said they are jealous of!!!
