    I live in New Port Richey, Florida. I am hoping I can have reconstruction surgery. I am a diabetic, and also had radiation in the same breast almost twenty years ago. So with these two complications, they do not know for sure that I can get
    reconstruction. So far I am healing good. If all goes well, I will have to decide
    what size I want to reduce the size of other breast which is a 38DD, and do a
    lift, how to do it, and to put in expansion in left breast, and reconstruct with a nipple. What is your experience in this. Or do I just note touch the other one.
    Not sure how they would be symmetric. Plastic Surgeon will, if possible put expansion under the muscle. Also, I am scared, this means two more surgeries.
    I did okay for the first one, but have a serious sensitivity to anesthesia. Any input appreciated.
