      Yes I had a double mastectomy on April 13, 2016. Yes I had the expanders put in but got infection on the left side & I found out that I will have to have chemo & radiation therfore I had to have them removed. Radiation would not be tolerate them to be in. So infection or not I needed them removed, so I really can't answer to many questions about them. I would be glad to try & answer any questions.

      I had bilateral mastectomy with expanders 2 years ago. The drains were the worst part. I have had no problems. I even had nipple tattoos done. I don't regret any of it. And the exchange surgery was easy. Good luck to you and keep us informed.
