I have just finished my chemo, except herceptin, and my next step is Bilateral mastectomy, I will have the reconstruction at the same time of surgery. 6 weeks after surgery I have to start radition and have radiation for 6 weeks. I did fine with the chemo, thank-god!! Personally the biggest part of my nightmare is the surgery, and radiation. Iam kinda feeling afraid, anybody out there who has been thru this, any advice, or anything that may help? Please reply, honestly I am mostly afraid of the surgery. The doctors tell me after surgery they have to expand my expanders faster than usual because they have to be expanded all the way for me to have radiation. I am worried about the outcome of the reconsturction after radiation too.
Thanks for reading......
