My sister and I would appreciate any thoughts you have about our 82-year old mother wanting to go the double mastectomy route for stage one cancer in the 'other' breast, rather than having a lumpectomy and radiation, etc. done, as she did last year for a pre-cancerous growth in the 'first' breast. We are concerned about the impact of this surgery itself, as she is no longer a 'spring chicken' and not very fit. We are trying to keep our own fears away from influencing her choices, but the age issue is one we struggle with. Thank you!
