reconstruction

hello all,

I haven't been on here for a while but i need to ask a question.
I had my recon in June 08 using an expander inplant. I was originally down for a Diep, but had to have a few operations on my stomach due to a bad reaction from the chemo.

To start with everything seemed ok, but now the implant seems to be squashed and slightly bulging under my armpit, so now my bras don't fit properly anymore as this side seems to have dropped a size.

I was wondering now my previous ops are a while ago do you think they may concider a Diep to obtain a better shape and has anybody had the same problem and had a sucessful outcome.

Thanks for any advice Candy.
