    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    My Mastectomy went very well, however I did have a problem with the Silicone Implants and had them removed at a later date.

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