    Decision Point

    Not much of a decision...bilateral mastectomy will be next. But I'm struggling with it.

    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Surgery scheduled for Feb. 14th. Happy Valentine's Day to me. (NOT!) It's too bad I'm BRCA1 positive because the chemo took care of the cancer. Wishing I was having a lumpectomy rather than bilateral mastectomy. I worked with DNA for several years in the lab, love genetics, love teaching genetics to my students...now it has come back to bite me in the butt (or boob).
