Double Mastectomy - jrthesurvivor

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on February 26, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

Rather than have a single mastectomy and have to get frequent mammograms on the other breast, I opted for bilateral mastectomy. They did find cancer in that right breast so it was a good call.
Stayed overnight in the hospital, then went home the next afternoon. Getting used to the drains was briefly difficult, but getting used to no breast was harder.
