    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): Finding out I had cancer in both breasts was scary. Finding out that I was very early in finding it still scary!! It was easy for us to decide on a double mastectomy, as neither of us wanted to go through this again, if that is possible. Both my husband and I are realists, I think very pragmatic and wanted to do what was best for the future as well as the present.

    Oh No (Now what?????): My Dr. left her practice and I did not know where she was. I didn't know what I was supposed to do at the end. The surgeons I had did not have those answers for me. So I felt totally at a loss at that point. It took me another 6 months to get my head back on "pretty straight".

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): To this point I was doing what needed to be done. My personality type is doing what needs to be done and getting on with it.
