    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I have been scheduled to have a double mastectomy on Aug 21st. Plastic Surgeron will put in expanders in the same day. We still only know I have Estrogen PR cancer at this point. Still staying upbeat about it all. My Sisters and I are going to go do a 5K the weekend before my surgery; to help keep up my spirits up.

    Went as Expected: Not Specified

    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    The Radiologist told me I had cancer. After, he stood there as I got dress. 1st thought, my husband and kids, 2nd thought, this is what it must feel like to shot by gun.....I asked if they could go get my husband. My Breast Surgeon was floored. That's my Oh No moment. So far since then I have blessed with excellent physicians and nurses. Still a long ways to go - -
