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.:)

My surgery in on April 14th.  I am scheduled for a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction.  I am seeing a physical therapist tomorrow to prepare for surgery and to get tips to help with recovery.

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?

Sending good wishes to you Jessi and I hope you'll update us when you can, I only had an ooph so can't help with any personal experience but many of the members here were fine after a hyst, good luck.

Thank you so much.  Doing pretty good.  Gas is what's hurting and being uncomfortable right now.  Other than that I feel like I would like to get up and walk.
