    Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    i had breast calcification that were tested and diagnosed with stage 0 DCIS.....in two spots. I chose to have a nipple sparing mastectomy with lymph node removal- all margins clear. No chemo or radiation but the Dr wants me to consider going on tamoxifen. ER & PR +....Not sure if the risks of the meds will outweigh the risk of BC coming back

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
