Hi sandyjr. I'm 69, booked in for DIEP (left and right) early this May 2021. I had tubal ligation (clips) at the age of 42. I'd like to know any answers to your question of "extra precaution" for surgery. I would not have thought of asking that question, ever! Thanks in advance.
Hi, @sandyjr – I wanted to let you know I moved your post here to an existing Mayo Clinic Connect discussion on the DIEP flap procedure. Hoping that you can meet others in this discussion like @tana @meliss @jenni17 and that they can let you know if they have had this reconstruction surgery after tubal ligation. If they had had a previous tubal ligation, they may have additional information on whether they were denied this type of reconstruction or if extra precaution was taken for the surgery. I'd also like for you to meet @bomashisha @chamisa and @jlms, who also may have some input.
Where are things at currently for you with a DIEP flap breast reconstruction? What has your doctor said about going ahead with this surgery?
