    Pain

    Side Effects

    I'm having pain in my hip. I don't know what to worry about more, aging, side effects from treatment, or recurrence.

    Breast Reconstruction (Implant)

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had permanent implants in October. Not totally happy with cosmetic results, but since I had radiation there's a limit to what can be done. I have contractures with saline implants. Does anyone know if anything can be done about the contractures?

    Went as Expected: Strongly Disagree

    New lump

    Oh No

    i found a new lump on opposite (left) side. Had a sonogram today -- no bad news yet, no reassurances either.
