I have been free of cancer for 10 years after surviving Hodgkins, and just recieved a DCIS Stage 0 dx. I am , as well as my doctors, leaning towards a bilateral mascectomy, with a latissimus reconstruction. I have been assured that I am not overreacting, as the reality of cancer reacurring is very real. I don't think I could bear the idea of chasing shadows the rest of my life, and I have two beautiful boys, 14 mos, and 9, who need me. Has anyone out there been through this experience. I need some fast answers, so direct e-mails will help. Remember, Moms' w/ babies can't spend alot of time searching on the computer. I am determined to be done with this, and admire everyones' strength and candor on this site. I am still in shock that I have cancer again, and am wondering what elso is going to pop up as a result of the radiation I had. HELP.
