I had a left mastectomy about 6 months ago and am doing great. However, I hate having one breast left. I find myself thinking about it before I go to bed and it is the first thing I think about when I wake up. It is haunting me. I do 2 breast exams a day. My logical side says not to worry, but my "feeling" side is stronger. I hate the prosthesis, so I never wear one. My right shoulder gets sore at times, I think from the remaining breast. I want to schedule another mastectomy. Has anyone else ever done this? Did the insurance pay for it? Was it hard to convince your surgeon to remove the remaining breast when basically it was still healthy? PLease share your story with me. Thank you so much!!
