Tuesday, early at the crack of dawn, I will be at the hospital having my double mastectomy with DIEP reconstruction. Also, my plastic surgeon is going to repair 2 hernias from my ovarian cancer debulking surgery. I will be at the hospital 3 to 5 days depending on blood flow to the transfered tissue. Prayers appreciated!

Prayers for sure....  I remember you posting earlier it was going to be a long surgery...  Best of luck.  Can't wait to hear your rundown of it.  It is in the back of my mind to do this...

You are doing the right thing. My doctor advised me to do the "easy" implants but caner came back before I got the espanders out so i had to wear them for a year. This way you will have a tough week but then you will be done and beautiful! Have a speedy recovery!
