I have finished my course of treatment and I am now looking at reconstruction.  At this point I plan to have my remaining breast removed and then have the DIEP flap reconstruction process done.  Has anyone Had this procedure done I have heard good things -know for sure I do not want the TRAM flap.  I would love to hear how your experience went if you have had this done.

Thanks,  Ann

Ha. I just commented on this in the other thread. I attempted it, had complications (nigntmare) and quit the process. Because of radiation. I'd be happy to elaborate if you've not done the skin expander yet. 
My friend that had tnbc had her surgery in December. It went perfectly! She's all healed up and her tummy  and breasts look great! She's still got to get her nipple tattoos, but they look terrific anyway. She had minimal pain and no complications.
