    Procedure or Surgery

    In my experience the mastectomy was the worst surgery. I was adequately prepared for the loss of a breast. I was not prepared for the effects of a lumpectomy. I still have swelling and infections from the surgery that was over a year ago.

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