Mastectomy - ZenSandy

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on August 30, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

I was scheduled for a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. I woke up to having one breast removed and everything else delayed due to a finding of cancer in 8 lymph nodes.

    I am so sorry to hear what your going thru. It sounds like you have good doctors and staff making it easier to understand. I did not have to have my breast removed because I have triple negative breast cancer. I'm currently in radiation treatment. I have till the end of this month and then my treatment is over. However I am having more pain from the Chemo now that it's done than when I was in treatment. Joints and hands.
