      Did you have a procedure yet? Recently I participated in BRA day at Northwell Health. It is a Breast Reconstruction Awareness seminar. 6 doctors explained the various procedures and choices for reconstruction with a slide show. Very informative. Maybe there is an upcoming event near you.

    Decision Point (Decision about type of surgery and where to have it done): had several different opinions on what could be done as far as surgery, went for 2nd opinion, much better options, much quicker testing and scheduled surgery

      I saw that you were diagnosed with stage 2a ILC, as was I. I opted for lumpectomy, chemo, radiation, and am currently receiving radiation treatments. During these past few months (diagnosed 6 months ago), I have learned that ILC is fairly rare and understudied. There is now an organization and website for invasive lobular carcinoma patients, and current research.
