I was diagnosed with widespread DCIS end of April this year. I had a mastectomy in June. At the time I did not consider any other option. I would prefer one breast and the certainty that I do not have breast cancer, or anything that could develop into invasive breat cancer. (I have lost two members of my family to breast cancer). I was offered reconstruction - but chose not to have it. I did not want to be in hosptial for any longer than necessary. I recovered quickly. I am happy with my prothesis. I know people can't tell which is the real breast (even my hubby gets mixed up soemtimes). Six months on - I feel well, but get tired, have been back in work since the end of July. I play badminton every week, and now go swimming weekly too. Sometimes I also go to the gym.
Whatever you decide - I wish you all very best.
