    Procedure or Surgery (Breast Reconstruction (Flap)): with the reconstruction on right breast, the plastic surgeon felt as though what he was removing did not feel and look quite right so they sent it for its own biopsy. it came back positive for DCIS with positive margins.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): I had a partial masectomy on left breast . Honestly there was minimal pain. on a scale of one to ten it never got over a five maybe six.

    Procedure or Surgery (not sure what to call this....they placed the 4 guide wires into breast and then did a scan): again unsure what this procedure was called :( however there was slight pain when they were placing the guide wires into breast. It honestly felt like they were poking through the bottom of breast. But once in place it was fine.

    Procedure or Surgery (Stereotactic Biopsy): not much pain ....the worst thing about this procedure was the unknown.
