Hello, 

Yesterday I had my check up with the surgeon that done my mastectomy. I have an appointment with a plastic surgeon on June 24. My Doctor said that they would likely want me to lose weight before they would preform the surgery... No one told me this prior to anything. I mean I know I would have had to have the DMX either way but I am ready to have my breast back . Has anyone encountered this?

Hi everyone, how are you doing?

Have any of you undergone breast reconstruction? If so, did the doctor mention anything to you about losing weight before the procedure? Do you know anything about this?
