    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): 10/16/12,,,had to have second surgery to remove 2 inches of dead skin from cancer side and 1 inch from other side. Was told it was very rare for the skin not to survive, also had to take out the implant so we do not run a chance of getting an infection and delaying chemo. Will put the implant back in after chemo treatments are finished.
