    I would like to hear from someone who has had latissimus muscle flap recon.

    Would like to know how painful it is and how long to recuperate.

      I had exbanders. A question I would ask is about back pain. You are taking a muscle from the back essentially robbing peter to pay paul. Ask what is the feed back from the women after losing the muscle in the back.
