How are you doing?
Radiation therapy can bring about changes in the breast. After some time, fibrosis can develop on the breast involved in surgery and radiation therapy. Implant can be used for your breast reconstruction. You should ask your plastic surgeon for the type of implant to be used for breast reconstruction. There should be an acceptable cosmetic outcome after the reconstruction.

How bad will radiation be on my implant-would I get new implants after all is done? will the breast getting radiation look lik ethe other one? if I get cancer in the other one can you do a masectomy on the both even thouogh one has been radiated?
