DIEP flap reconstruction and then radiation?

DIEP flap reconstruction and then radiation?

Hi, I just finished 20 weeks of chemo, single mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction.
Now, my doctors are thinking about 28 days of radiation, although I seem to have no spread to any lymph node (thankful!). This would be my second round of radiation; the first was 20 years ago.

Does anyone know how a flap -- DIEP or Trans -- responds to radiation?

Thanks so much, Beth
