Implant reconstruction after radiation

I have a recurrence of DCIS in my right breast. In 2017 I had a lumpectomy and radiation. I now need to have a mastectomy and I’m hoping to have an implant reconstruction, rather than the DIEP flap. Most of the conversations I’ve found on the success of an implant reconstruction years after having radiation are pretty old. Can anyone tell me about their more recent experiences?

Thank you in advance for sharing! This is such a difficult decision.
