Diep Flap Procedure
Hi @jenni17, Did you decide to have reconstruction? How are you doing? It would be great to get an update.
@vivlaj, you mentioned that you're one surgery away from being whole again. Have you had the final surgery or is it in the future?

I had diep flap revonstruction on August 8, 2007, immediately after my bilateral mastectomy. Dr. Maurice Nahabedian performed the surgery at Georgetown Hospital after Dr. Shawna Willey removed my breasts. It
was an eleven hour surgery and the best decision of my life. He’s considered the leading expert in this field and actually was at Hopkins prior to Georgetown and is at GW Hospital, I believe … at present. ❤️ this surgeon!!!
