    Recouperation time

    After 4 rounds of chemo, I am having bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction (implants) on July 30th. If all goes well with surgery, how soon would I be able to attend a concert? I am stage 1 triple negative.

      Figure at least 2 or 3 days of being doped up maybe after a week or so you can go to a concert, but be prepared to leave early if you don't feel like staying. You might still have the drains but if you were a button down shirt you will just look fat.
      Good Luck

      I would say that you shouldn't go to a concert until at least the drains are removed, so you don't risk an infection.
