    Procedure or Surgery

    I was diagnosed in June 2011 with DCIS, non-invasive. Unilateral mastectomy, left breast, July2011, had no risk factors except age(?). 6-month check in February 2012, films showed calcifications that definitive diagnosis very difficult. Unilateral mastectomy in May 2012. No radiation or chemo with either mastectomy. Recovery has been slow.

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