Deadline for breast reconstruction after mastectomy
Last year I had a mastectomy and the doctor gave me another 2 months of radiation treatment after the surgery so I couldn't have an immediate reconstruction. I thought I would accept my body as it is, but I came to the conclusion that I would feel more confident if I reconstructed my right breast. Is there a deadline for having a breast reconstruction after mastectomy? Is a year too late for this procedure? When would be the best time to have breast reconstruction after a mastectomy?
