I am a 1 year survivor. I had a double mastectomy so I know how physically and mentally difficult it can be. This week my 93 year old grandmother was diagnosed with a large tumor in one breast and small tumors in the other one. The family met with a surgeon today and he said he is 99.9% sure it is cancer. He is sending her for a biopsy and wants to do a double mastectomy. She is in a nursing home, has had a stroke and has congestive heart failure. We are at a loss as a family as to what to do. What happens if we choose to do nothing? How do you put someone who is 93 through this? Any words of wisdom or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
