Re: Second Mastectomy

Thanks for your reply Janie 2. Yes they have been very good about the elective surgery. I was told it would take a year before my next surgery, then a couple of weeks ago my consultant called me in and said he would make my appointment for 14th October. I was shocked as my bcn had just told me about the year long wait just a couple of weeks before. I'm still a long way from recovery from my first mx which was in June but I might as well deal with pain from both at once.

Re: Second Mastectomy

Oh Issy that's rotten and I hope they've been supportive with elective mastectomy. I know a friend had a real battle to get them to agree. I didn't want to pass your post by. Huge hugs xx

Second Mastectomy

I had breast cancer 6 years ago, I then had a WLE and 5 years of tablets which ended last September. This April I was diagnosed with widespread DCIS and had to have a mastectomy in June. I am now having an elected mastectomy on my remaining breast next week. I just want my life back to normal.
