Hi Pippi1969 - I want to send you a big hug and totally understand you wanting to have a second mastectomy. I had a right mastectomy last year and asked for a left one at the same time but my surgeon wouldn't do it. I have since read that if you insist then they will do it. I also understand how annoying it is when people ask about celebrating/have you got the all clear etc etc. They mean well but only if you have had it can you understand why those comments are inappropriate. All the best with making your decision, you are doing the right thing by talking it through.
