    Exercise after reconstruction

    I had a tram flap reconstruction in December, and want to know how long before I can go back to the gym and do core exercises? Mine was muscle sparing. It still feels a little sore, so wanted to know what others experience has been with this. Thanks!

      I would definitely ask your surgeon about this. I have not had my reconstruction yet, I opted for implant. I have also figured when in doubt, ask the doctor. My doctor also told me this, all of them actually did.
