I. Freedom from local failure and freedom from regional failure.
I. Acute toxicity and late toxicity using previously published toxicity scales. II. To identify co-variates responsible for poor cosmetic outcome in women with reconstructed chest walls when treated with accelerated, hypofractionated radiotherapy.
III. To correlate toxicity, cosmesis, and local control with molecular markers.
Patients undergo hypofractionated accelerated RT over 11 weekdays (for 15 elapsed days) within 21-63 days after last surgery or last course of chemotherapy. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 2-8 weeks, every 3-6 months for 3 years, every 6-12 months for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.

Experimental: Radiation Therapy
Patients undergo hypofractionated accelerated radiation therapy over 11 weekdays (for 15 elapsed days) within 21-63 days after last surgery or last course of chemotherapy. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Radiation: External beam radiation therapy
Hypofractionated accelerated radiation therapy over 11 days
Other Name: EBRT
- Time to local, regional, and/or distant failure [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years after dose of last treatment ]Assessed by physical examination and other relevant imaging per the discretion of the patients treating physicians. Confirmed by biopsy, and should be coded as either chest wall recurrence, axilla, supraclavicular, or internal mammary.
- Number and grade of adverse events experienced by patients [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years after last dose of treatment ]Adverse events will be monitored weekly during treatment, then two weeks after RT, then at week 8, then every 3-6 months for 3 years, then every 6-12 months out to 5 years.
- Number of patients requiring a surgical revision of their reconstruction [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years after dose of last treatment ]
