Double Mastectomy

I saw my surgeon Dr Babiera and I’m scheduled for 28 February for surgery. I also have to see a plastic surgeon for my mastectomy.

I will also get my lymph nodes taken away on top of my chest and also on the left side going to my arm. The Dr said it’s a hard case with this type of cancer . Also they have to take a flap of my stomach to cover the breast area, I will be hospitalized for 5 days. After all, I finally get my tummy tuck.

I have decided to have a double mastectomy done from the beginning when I was diagnosed . I’m confused now. I think that I will leave the other breast alone. My new friends I talk to every morning also said it’s a big decision to have both taken and to recover from surgery.

With the surgery scheduled for 28 Feb, the hospitalization, and recovery process, it looks like I can not come home till sometime in March.
