Hi all I have grade 2 invasive and none invasive BC, and have chosen to have lateral mamoplasty, has anyone else had/got this kind of BC and this operation? X
Hi @boffj I was diagnosed with stage 1 invasive ductal breast cancer and had a therapeutic mammoplasty and sentinel lymp node biospy 4 weeks ago. Because of the position of the tumour my surgeon recommended this rather than a lumpectomy which would have resulted in some deformity post surgery. I decided to have a mammoplasty on the unaffected breast at the same time for symmetry, and so that the surgeon could use some breast tissue from the healthy breast to re-shape the one with the tumour.
During surgery they found a non invasive tumour in my right breast, so I’m glad I made the decision I did!
I’m happy to answer any questions I can. It is a bigger operation than a lumpectomy, but so far I’m happy with the results. I think I’ve probably gone down 2-3 cup sizes but I think I’ll be OK with that.
