Hello...Just wondering if someone out there can give me information on how painful/uncomfortable it is to have reconstruction. I am supposed to do the reconstruct after my chemo sessions which end in November. My masctectomy was in june. I'm so tired and the thought of going through more pain for a long period of time scares me and I don't know if it is really worth it in the end. I need the advice of those of you that have gone through it. The surgeon is recommending expanders and saline bag and doesn't feel that it will take too long before the skin stretches enough (3 months)...that seems like a long time of suffering and then after the surgery??? Please advise.
