Positive experience with implants?
Hey everyone, I was just diagnosed for the second time and am really struggling with my limited reconstruction options. The first time around I only had a lumpectomy but this time I am doing a mastectomy (unilateral). I am not a great candidate for DIEP Flap surgery due to limited abdominal tissue (I could do TUG, from the thigh, but that's a really tough recovery I'd like to avoid). That leaves me with implant. I was feeling pretty good about my decision to go that route until I started reading the forums. Between the reports of breast implant illness, the non ideal cosmetic results, and the lack of muscle strength (it has to go subpectoral because I had radiation on that breast before) that I am reading about on here I am really starting to second guess my decision now! My surgery is scheduled for 9 days from now and I'm really starting to panic about it. I really need to hear from some women who have had positive experiences with their implants (bonus if they are subpectoral!) and also not experiencing breast implant illness symptoms in order to feel better about my decision! Anyone out there in that camp??
