    Oh No

    I had no pain or appearance. Three different doctors could not find the mass by palpatation. I have a strong faith walk and found it very difficult to accept this diagnosis based on tests.

    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    My daily life was very active, on the go. Since I chose to have expanders/reconstruction at the same time as the double mastectomy, my life has been focused on getting through hurtles, and each hurtle tends to carry its own sense of well being/ quality of life/ and pain issues.

    Went as Expected: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
