      Hello, here is a link to a similar conversation that took place about this not too long ago. I thought it might help: https://www.whatnext.com/questions/i-desperately-need-to-talk-with-women-who-had-latissimus-flap-for-reconstruction

      Well, I read your link. Great :(. I cannot afford any more chronic uncomfortable/ pain in my life. And, I DO need to be able to freely use my arms, lift things, etc. I was supposed to do lat flap in Feb, but got sick and had to cancel. The decision is to do the lat flap or just remove the other implant, fix up the scars and be done with it, which I am kind of leaning to. I'm tired of having to keep working on it. Thought I'd be done by now (well, actually, by about 1.5 years ago!). The ONE thing I didn't want was to be a uni-boob and that's what I've got now.
