Hi everyone,

I've had two lumpectomies done last year, chemo & radiation completed. Now, I'm going to have bilateral masectomy and reconstruction at the same time in three months time as a precautionary, because of a very rare type of cancer called "Adenosquamous" that has a high recurrance.  

I've got mixed feelings - is it worth it to have the big operation? The plastic surgeons advised me that it takes between 8 to 14 hours of operation - that kind of freak me out (never had operation that long).

Hi everyone,

I was diagnosed with early breast cancer (stage 2) last year at the age of 36 with a husband and three young children. I've had two lumpectomies, three months of chemo, six weeks of radiation and now I'm on tamoxifen since the beginning of last month.
