Breast cancer for the under-50s

Breast cancer is far less common in the under-50s, but this can leave younger people with a diagnosis feeling isolated. This group is a place for them to come together, share experiences and support each other.

Diep Reconstruciton

Hi, I was treated for Her2 + breast cancer, grade 2 early stage in Sept 2017, after chemo, mastectomy and 12 Herceptin injections I am now looking at Diep reconstruction.  The treatment has bought on the menopause and although I weight the same as before my treatment it has settled around my middle.  Despite several months of trying it does not appear to be moving much. Has anyone experienced any problems having the Diep due to their weight?  Hope that makes sense, apologies if it doesn't its my first post and struggling to word this. thanks
