Double Mastectomy - nancyjac

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Posted on July 5, 2012 View this journey (13 Experiences)

Had bilateral mastectomy. In hospital one day, out the next. Couple of days later lab report indicated no clean margins at skin level. So back to the hospital for re-excision and removal of more skin. That resulted in not having enough skin left to close the wound, so also had to have plastic surgery to take a chunk of my abdomen to cover the wound. Was in the hospital for a full week that time, but finally got clean margins.
