Diagnosed - bbailey248

Oh No Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on July 6, 2012 View this journey (8 Experiences)

After my initial diagnosis I researched for as much current info as I could...sought out as many women as I could...I talked to about 3 dozen women. As well...I still had the journey of our son very fresh in my mind. I usually dwell and speculate...have plan A and plan B in case plan a doesn't work. Based on all the information and statistics I decided to undergo a bilateral mastectomy. If I had to do it over again...I'd do the exact same thing. After my initial surgery it was about 18 months..a total of 3 surgeries and everything was reconstructed. Since 2006 insurance companies cannot consider reconstruction due to cancer as a "cosmetic" procedure.
