I am new to this forum. I am 40 year old Dublin lady. Married with two kids (8 & 9).
I was diagnosed with stage I breast cancer on the 13th Oct. I just have it in my left breast. I have had a unsuccessful lumpectomy. I agreed with the doc to have the masectomy if the lumpectomy did not remove enough and the margin was not good, which it was not.
The doc routinely does reconstruction surgery with the LD flap method in the same surgery as the masectomy. Has anoyone on here had the same done at te same time? I am trying to do some research before I meet back with doc on Thursday. Surgery is planned for the week after.
Never thought I would be dealing with this, no history in my family, no other symptoms except the (large) lump in my left breast. Chemo, radiation and hormone therapy are all planned too.
Thanks for reading.
