One lump or two- hmmm. Surgeon seemed to think a prophylactic (preventative) mastectomy was OK but the reconstructive surgeon looked a bit amazed at the idea.
My intial lumpectomy resulted in margins that were not clear and now mastectomy/ mastectomies will follow my chemo.
Keen to hear from both camps- were ladies happy with their decision to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction to avoid the trauma of possibly having to go through diagnosis and treament for a second time?
Have just read a blog about heartburn- no one has mentioned that to me yet!
I begin next chemo next week and despite lots of reading I feel I am in for a bit of a shock! On top of hair loss, fatigue, nausea and weight gain what else should I be prepared for?
