Hi. I had a bilateral mastectomy on January 5 with immediate free TRAM flap reconstruction. I will have another surgery on March 29 to finish up the reconstruction (nipples, reshaping, etc.).
I'm tired of surgeries (as I'm sure lots of you are!!). This will be my fourth surgery in 8 months (had Achilles' tendon surgery, lumpectomy, BMX w/recon, and now this latest one). I'd like to combine these last two surgeries into one.
Of course, it would make this surgery a bigger deal and would require a hospital stay of 2 nights, according to my gynocologist.
Has anyone ever done this and, if so, what was your experience? Thanks!
