There are so many variations of how to do these surgeries I guess. If you don't mind answering this, why did they use the lat muscles instead of the pectoralis muscles? That's what they did on me, but I didn't know there were other approaches.
You can also get a mentor through the American Cancer Society's program called Reach To Recovery. They match you up with someone according to the things that are most important to you and what your history is.
