I had a double mastectomy and have not been doing breast self-exams. My breast surgeon asked me if I was doing them, but then she said I didn't 'have to.' I feel like I probably should be doing them, but I go see my onc and breast surgeon every 3 months and part of me feels they know better what to look for.
I was wondering, do you other women who have had mastectomies still examine your reconstructed breasts yourselves? Or not...
