I had my bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction during the same surgery. It was a six-hour procedure and although I did not have any complications I did have some side effects from the medicine that I was on following the surgery. I did have many side effects once I started chemo. I had diarrhea; I had stomach cramps and I had watery eyes; I had bloody noses; I had joint pain; I had fatigue. I didn't have nausea, which is one of the most common side effects, so that was actually good, but I did have pretty much every other side effect that you could have with chemotherapy.
