I had a lumpectomy on November. Lymph nodes are negative (and I'm very thankful about that), but they didn't didn't get clean margins. So now surgeon is planning ot go back in again.
I will be visiting with oncologist for the first time tomorrow, and one thing I want to talk to her about is having bilateral mastectomies and reconstruction at the same time.
I am 48 years old, my mom has had breast cancer, my grandmother has had it twice, and I'm just thinking if I can get rid of it now before it recurs and moves to my lymph nodes that I would be better off. I wouldn't have to have radiation or chemo, and I'd never have to worry about recurrence.
Am I crazy for thinking this?
