    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Hi, My name is Beth, I'm 44 and was diagnosed with DCIS breast cancer in May 2012. I had a bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstructive surgery on July 31, 2012. I am now in the process of having my implant exchange surgery after Christmas and overall things have gone well. I am definitely comfortable with my decision re: my treatment choice but am finding myself anxious lately with the lack of control over my body, having to have another surgery and feeling alone! I look forward to hearing from others and hope to give back what I can from my experience.
