    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had a double mastectomy, axillary lymph node dissection and tissue expanders put in. The surgery ended up taking a few hours longer than expected as the tumor was larger than the surgeons expected and it had spread into my lymph nodes.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have to do 16 treatments of chemo due to the results of the tumor. I have already done 4 of the Adriamycin/Cytoxin which were every other week. Next, I will have 12 treatments of the Taxol which is every week, along with Herceptin since the tumor is HER2 positive.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
