Hi ladies (& gents)

Just thought I'd let you know that I am due to undergo bilateral mastectomy & DIEP reconstruction on 12 Oct (still having a fight with my private med insurance to cover this in full - I do need the extra stressssss NOT!!!)

Anyway here's to a flat tummy and pert boobies.

the good news is that my doc ordered a CA125 prior to surgery and it's 3 Smile

Cyber hugs to all

Breast cancer surgery and reconstruction are tough, but not as tough as debulking surgery and the spectre of OVCA, so great news!

Great news about your CA125.

You will win the fight with insurance, no doubt. You're too tough to let them have their way.

Lotsa' luv,

Alexandra

I had a double mastectomy and DIEP surgery June 25.  I am now waiting for the next step, to have shaping and nipples done.

 I agree the debulking was a much harder surgery to recover from than the DIEP.  Although the repair of my 3 hernas with the mesh, has not been an easy walk.  

Hope all is going well and that you heal nicely.
