    Hello Jonesy41,

    Welcome to the site! Your name caught my eye, because I call my husband Jonesy! It's great that you caught this early so just think positive! I was diagnosed in September 2011 with DCIS, Stage 0 also and I am now 44 years old. Feel free to view my wall to see my journey. After a 2nd opinion and prayer, I decided to have a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery in March 2012. One thing you should know is that I originally decided to have the saline breast implant put in but after about 11 months, the surgeon told me the tube from the implant was leaking. I had to have a 2nd surgery 1 year later to have a silicone implantation. I am doing fine now, and did not have to have chemotherapy.

    My prayers are with you!

    Has anyone had the breast reconstruction surgery with saline implant expander? If so, what can be done about the tightness & hard feeling?
