Hello all,

My name is Adriana.  I am having a bilateral mastecomy on 04/19/13. Invasive Ductal carcinoma.  Delayed reconstruction is planned but no estimate date on that yet since will have to be after chemo and possible radiation.

Hello, My name is Anne and my surgery is scheduled for the 17th of April. I am having a single mastectomy and then reconstruction at the same time. No chemo needed, :) Very scared.

Hi Anne, do check out the surgery/recon forum which should help and reassure you on this op but its normal to be scared before any procedure, good luck and please keep us posted when you can.:)

Thank you Scootersmon!  Was your mastectomy a year ago?  I've been wondering about the healing process through the first year and the emotional ups and downs.  How are you doing now?
