I had a most successful and beautiful DIEP with you 4 years ago. A very positive experience and beautiful outcome. Dr. Stolier said the research does not support any follow-up imaging and my insurance declined an MRI unless I have an abnormal mammogram. I don't know what to do. Should I get an annual mammogram? Pay privately for am MRI? Please give me your thoughts. It feels so "weird" not to be getting any mammogram or follow-up imaging. I doubt the Dr.'s in Norfolk Va would be familiar with reading a mammogram with DIEP tissue. Private pay MRI would be so very expensive.
