My situation is somewhat similar. Had bmx and diep flap recon last May. Path report indicated intermediate DCIS and positive margin. Apparently very small area of DCIS remains in lower outer quadrant of breast. Fortunately no invasive was found. Drs are not recommending another surgery to remove tissue (given small size and reconstruction) nor do they recommend radiation. They are recommending I take Tamoxifen for 5 yrs. Medical team explained research doesn't support radiation or another surgery for such a small amount of DCIS. I don't understand how any DCIS remains if ducts were removed. I see another oncologist tomorrow for a 2nd opinion.
