Hi, I have a stage 2 lump that is positioned on the top right of my breast. Just completed dose 5 of FEC-T and the lump isn't shifting. So, can't have lumpectomy as surgeon needs to take skin when lump is removed. This means mastectomy, with skin, fat and arteries being removed from my tummy and somehow crafting a breast. Followed by radio which might alter the new breast. The plastic surgeons are trying to be positive by saying its a tummy tuck but this was never something on my bucket list. I am wondering do I have any other options - will they take both off? I think I cld cope being flat chested. Has anyone else had experience of this reconstruction? Do you just hope for the best? I always assumed lump wld shrink and I wld get a lumpectomy.
