    Radiation (External radiation ): today is my third treatment and i'm already red. i'm also very tired, but that may be the anemia.

    has anyone had a plastic surgery to correct asymmetry from a partial mastectomy with radiation?

    Decision Point: when i went to the radiation oncologist, she advised me that the margins were clear by less than 1mm. she once again asked me if i wanted a right total mastectomy because now an extra month of radiation would have to be added. i am also now very anemic (which explains why i'm am so tired).

    i broke down on the way to work this morning because all of a sudden it hit me everything that has happened and could happen. at this point i want this over and i am thinking about having the mastectomy. i wouldn't have to follow with chemo or radiation.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): This recovery went better than the first. No nausea or vomiting. Denise was with me :)
