implants after chemo. radiation/

Does anyone have experience to share with implants after a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation? I was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago, and 2 surgeons have told me they think I am a good candidate for implants, but would love to hear other stories...

My DH's ex had BC 3 years ago and had a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation. She waited a year after she was done to do the reconstruction. She had huge boobs to begin with and was only looking to even them up.
