My sister saw the surgeon Monday.After some discussion she is having reconstruction.So the surgeon is sending her to a plastic surgeon and he will go over things and see what can or should be done. The general surgeon does the masctomies and the platic surgeon does the reconstruction????? She said both would be done the same time.I thought that is unusual. I thought masectomies and then reconstuction after some healing.Maybe I read both ways but most of the time first massectomie and then reconstruction.I'm sure most of you know more than me on this.
Now waiting for her to see the plastic surgeon and go from there.Will let all of you know then what they will do.She is the one with 2 different cancers in each breast.Usually that happens down the road but this happened for her first dx.4 malignant tumor 2 in each breast.Still not sure if any node involvement???? Won't know till the surgery.
