    Double Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Drains are still in. Will be removed next week. Chemo will begin in January. Surgeon says got all the cancer, and margins were clear. Surgeon and Oncologist recommended Chemo. Somewhat skeptical about it but it has been scheduled. I am quite active for my age, but I am concerned about the quality of my life for next couple of years.

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

    Haven't seen this symptom much my case my right arm had an intractable dull ache . Since I am right handed I thought it was from overuse...not so. Cancer comes in many guises
