Well I posted a couple of weeks ago being newly diagnosed with DCIS. I have spoken with the doctor team at the breast cancer center. I have multifocal, multiple cancers in each beast. Bilateral mastectomy is treatment with immediate reconstruction (implants). How long of a recuperation period with double mastectomy? Does everyone get those drain tubes? So gross. Meeting with the plastic surgeon on Tuesday. From your experience are there any watch outs I should find out about with reconstruction. So far you ladies have been wonderful with your sharing.
