    Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I was not prepared for the shock after surgery. I know my doctor explained what he would do, but I didn't think it would look so bad. I know they needed to take alot of skin with the breast and stretch the skin so that they could close, but still bothers me when I look in the mirror, or shower.

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