Why: Breast Reconstruction post Mastectomy.

I would like to find out what type of results I shoould have expected. Have other people had this procedure using the Gummy implants? Do other people still experiance pain. What can be done to coreect the uneven appearance of my breast? Can the empty area in the upper portion of my breast/armpit area/cleavage area be filled?

I have had a tram flap breast reconstruction with poor results.I had this procedure done in May of 2009. I have no tissue on the upper portion of the breast. The reconstruction was done useing the gummy implant. I am in the trials for the gummy implant. What if anything can be done to fill in the hollow in the upper portion of the breast? The implant looks as if it is just sitting on my chest. Has anyone else had reconstuction with this type of implant? I have pain on the side of my breast that seems to me to be due to the hard/firm implant. I have discomfort after wearing a bra for more than three hours, is this a normal problem after this type of surgery? My other concern is maybe harder to answer, how do insurance companies decide if you have had a good outcome from surgery? What type of results should I have expected?

I haven't been on this site since my origional post January of 2010. I checked a few times after my post but no replys. I'm so happy to see that so many women have joined and shared their experiances.
Its lovely that you have all had someone to chat with.
I have almost finished my reconstruction, I just need to accessorize. Actually I'ge not even made up my mind about that. Ive been without for three years now and I'm not sure if its worth one more surgery. I suppose I should just go ahead and do it and make it an even ten surgeries.
oh well I will think about that tomorrow.
Again happy to see all the posts that followed mine and very happy to know that you have all had each other to chat with.
