Waiting for surgery..... - mariet

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on October 11, 2011 View this journey (11 Experiences)

No one I asked on the medical team--PCP, breast surgeon, oncologist, plastic surgeon--seemed able to answer my questions on what to anticipate. All anyone would say was "each person's experience is different"--which did nothing to help my anxiety pre-surgery. It took over 6 weeks past diagnosis to have the surgery, and that is too long to wait. There was little online as well.
