I just saw this post – sorry for the late reply.
TRAM stands for Transverse Rectus Abdominas Myocutaneous Flap. It is the Rectus Abdominas that is removed , and the amount depends on whether the plastic surgeon needs tissue for one or both breasts. I would get as much information as possible. I agree with Joanne.
