    Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Didn't expect the nerve damage in chest and especially under the arm(tricep area). In retrospect it makes sense, just wasn't told to expect it and was at first worried. Everything else was pretty much like I was told to expect. Biggest problem for me is I am impatient to use my arm and chest muscles as I am used to. Was starting a regular gym workout when diagnosed and am anxious to get back into the gym.

    Went as Expected: Agree
