    Procedure or Surgery (Mastectomy): I was lucky that all the cancer was removed and nothing was found in my Lymph nodes but,
    I contracted an infection from the Breast expander that was placed at the time of my Mastectomy and required a 4 hr. surgery to remove the affected tissue and muscle

    I am also having problems with Tamoxifen so on Jan. 9th, almost a yr. to the day I was diagnosed I am having my ovaries removed and undergoing genetic testing again...
