Double Mastectomy - Mhjohnson0306

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on January 9, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

August 23rd I had a double mastectomy with tram flap reconstruction. Surgery went well, but that is when my diagnosis went from stage 0 to stage 2b. Right side had spread to 1 sentinel lymph node. Since 1 node tested positive, that would mean 6 rounds of chemo and 5 years of tamoxifen.

The mastectomy would prob have quick recovery, but because I had tram flap, it was much longer b

Went as Expected: Agree
Minimal Recovery: Disagree
Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
