    Hello dear BeckyDr. Sorry, but I've only just received your message. Sorry to hear you have so much concern and pain regarding your reconstruction. I had my reconstruction the same day as my mastectomy, with muscle from my back together with a small implant. Unfortunately for you its dragged out over a period of 5 months. I am in England UK and I think our procedures are different to your country. I did have an ach...

      Dear LMMax, I really do feel for you. I'm sure you've heard this line a million times since Sept 26, but it is very early days for you. Having said that, if I ever (please God I don't) have to go through this dreadful ordeal again, there is no way I would have a reconstruction. I think I've overcome the cancer better mentally having had recon, but living with this dreadful tightness in my back, some 3 years now, I w...

        Thank you so much Choose50 for replying to my message! It's so reassuring to hear some good news on this horrible back pain. So pleased you were able to find a caring doctor who persevered and helped ease your pain. Unfortunately I'm in England and it's not so easy to always get what you want here. Having said that, I will try and find out about IV infusion. Thanks again.

            I read with interest your comments on tightness to back after mastectomy reconstruction. I had this operation 3 years ago and am still in constant excruciating pain. I have now been diagnosed with osteoporosis. I am wondering if my tightness of the back could have caused this please? Please advise if possible.

              I had DCIS with a mastectomy reconstruction 3 years ago. I was lucky and didn't require any treatment after or medication after. Unfortunately, I've had constant tightness pain in the area of the back where muscle was brought around my back under arm to make my new boob. The pain is excruisiating still. I have now just been diagnosed with osteoporosis. I was wondering if the tightnesss over a period of time could hav...
