Mastectomy - DianaL

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on August 17, 2012 View this journey (10 Experiences)

On June 14, 2012 I had a bilateral mastectomy. Path report came back with no cancer in any other nodes, blood vessels or nerves. No radiation needed and possibly no chemo. One of the happiest days of my life. All the cancer had been removed at the time of the lumpectomy. Will have reconstruction once we know about chemo. If no chemo now. If chemo then I will have to wait at least 12 or more weeks from start of chemo. I am having implants on the recommendation of my surgical oncologist.

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