      Are you having a lumpectomy or a mastectomy?
      Will there be drains?
      If so, ask about the proper way to care for the drains.
      Ask about the proper way to change the dressing.
      Ask when you can bathe.
      Are you interested in reconstruction? If so, ask about those options.

      Write down the answers because there will be a lot of info and that will help to keep things straight.

      There are others on this site that have created lists of questions. Hopefully, they will see your question and respond.

      Good luck to you!
