I was diagnosis for the second time in 10 years with Breast Cancer. The first time was a lumpectomy followed by Chemo and radiation. All was well until my mamo in august 2012. I was very indecisive regarding the type of surgery I should have. Lumpectomy or Masectomy. I also took the BRACA test and that came back negative. I made my decision to have a double masectomy. My decision came as I did not want to revisit this in the future.I am one week post op. The other day I received the pathology report from the surgeon. Cancer in the right breast already known with the added precancer cells but the real zinger was that cancer had returned in the left breast. Very early stages but none the less cancer again. I was so shocked. Not in a million years did I except cancer in the left breast this soon. I can't tell you how happy I am with my decision to remove them both and move on with my life. I know the next several months won't be easy but knowing that I will not have to hear that again gives me such piece of mind.
Just wanted to share
