Double Mastectomy - ErinJ

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (12 Experiences)

This was a difficult surgery. I left the hospital with four drains that had to be emptied several times a day. No lifting for several weeks. Becuase I decided to do reconstruction following my radiation, "spacer" were inserted until the treatment was complete and reconstructive surgery could take place.

It was difficult but doable!!
