Anyone had implants after radiation?


So I just saw my PS for the first time and her PA told me that they don’t recommend doing implants if I have radiation even after having radiation because it can cause capsular contracture etc.. and I’m an A cup and very badly want to be bigger like a C.. so diep flap won’t give me the size I want (I don’t think) I only saw the actual ps doctor for a split second and she just said we’ll talk more about my options after radiation.. and my lump is completely gone but I am stage 3 andBRCA2 but idk why they still need to do radiation, like idk if it’s still a question about radiation or if it’sa for sure thing..? If you can tell me why you had to have radiation and did you have implants or something else and what did your plastic surgeon say about implants and radiation?
