      I had options of mastectomy or lumpectomy. I chose modified bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. It was followed by 6 rounds of CMF chemo cocktail. I did not needd rads. I was on tamoxifen for 2 months but could not handle the side effetcs and stopped it. Everyone's time frame is different because everyone's cancer is different, however, I spoke with 3 breast surgeons, 2 plastic surgeons and 2 oncologists before I chose my team of life savers.
