Learning About Breast Cancer
I had the DEIP last September. I am very pleased with the outcome. I did research on both the DEIP and TRAM and felt the residual side affects were less with the DEIP. My PS agrees with that; his statement is why use tissue (muscle) that doesn't match what is naturally in the breast. He also stated that he has done corrective surgery for women who have gone through the TRAM. I hope this is helpful. My best advise is to research the options with your doctor and family. There are also a lot of good blogs, like this one, that have good honest opinions and experiences from some pretty amazing women. You are one of those amazing women. I wish you all the best.
