Clear margins were not found after the first or second surgery so a mastectomy was recommended. In pursuit of information about reconstructive surgery I contacted the Mayo Clinic. A wise and caring nurse on the phone suggested that I come for a second opinion. During this appointment in mid-October, I was encouraged to find out that a third lumpectomy could be considered which delighted me because by this time I'd ruled out reconstructive surgery.
