Mastectomy - AlizaMLS

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on January 7, 2013 View this journey (7 Experiences)

I had my procedure performed at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC, so they routinely perform reconstruction at the same time as the mastectomy. I was given an expander which was filled with saline. The idea is that despite the mastectomy, it's not as traumatic, because you don't wake up with your "breast" entirely gone (though it's smaller and there's a pretty bad scar).

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