    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    The surgery was as I expected I have no breasts anymore but the recovery was not minimal to me cuz I had those drain tubes in for about 4 weeks in the side effects or the the nerves under your arms don't act right so you may have pain running down your arm cuz you can feel it pulling I don't like the scars especially under my arms it seems like that they didn't do it right or something yes and I think it will impact my life because I think I'll always be single cuz there's not going to be a man that wants a woman that doesn't have any breast

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

    Fluid in the abdomen (ascites)

    Side Effects

    I had several side effects from neuropathy to hair loss to I still believe that there is something wrong with my stomach because it is still swollen and hard and I don't know what that is but I intend to find out it burned my skin some discolored all around it was not easy on the body with the chemo
