I ended up with a latissimus flap also. My left side kept popping open and I had to go through all the healing process again 5 times. The PS finally decided there wasn't enough blood flow in the skin to allow for proper healing and the lat flap with skin solved the problem. But, by that point (5 times for expanders,with surgery each time, Plus the surgeries just for the healing.) I was over it and never attempted to get an expander / implant put back in. The lat flap was the last surgery. I use a prostheses on the left and have successful implant on the right.
