Chemotherapy and timing of breast reconstructive surgery

As with a number of patients, chemotherapy can be a necessary part of the treatment process, as well as hormonal therapy. Usually, at the conclusion of chemotherapy, if one is in the process of breast reconstruction, we usually will wait at least one month for any staged procedure as part of breast reconstruction… The one month timing is for the body and immune system to recover… a patient’s blood count may also be checked during that timeframe to make sure that things are getting back to normal
