    Oh No

    I felt like I had been hit over the head by a hammer. After the shock wore off, I talked to friends who were dealing with the disease, or who had battled it. That is a very important step in the process!!!! Reach out to survivors and fellow cancer patients.

    Procedure or Surgery

    Work on your core muscles. You won't be able to use your pectorals, so you'll have to adjust. If you don't work out, it's going to be harder. Get in shape as much as you can before your surgery! It will really help.

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