    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I thought it was just going to be a simple procedure of just removing the lump from my breast, but it was more serious than I expected.

    Breast Reconstruction (Implant)

    Procedure or Surgery

    Decided to have bilateral mastectomies because I didn't want to face this trauma of going through this ordeal a second time with the opposite breast. I also will be doing breast reconstruction so I have expanders in me now. This recovery has been a very slow recovery because it is already 1 month since I had the surgery and I still have my drains in me.

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

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Was very lucky because the doctors took all the tumor out which was benign, and that we caught it at an early stage... Oncologist doctor said I didn't have to do chemo or radiation.
