    If I should have a partial mastectomy or a full one.

    Decision Point

    I recently got diagnosed with infiltrating ductal carcinoma. I am now at the point where I have to decide what type of procedure I have to get. My sister had a partial about 3 years ago, and had a bad reaction to the radiation therapy. When I first talked it over with my husband and children we agreed that I should go for the full mastectomy on the left side. But now I am having second thoughts, after taking a day to let the news sink in. Can anyone share their experience with radiation therapy?
