@zinath123 How are you doing? Did you go ahead with the surgery. I have the ATM gene mutation also and went ahead with the bilateral in September of 2016. Have not run across too many with this, but then again, they did not usually test for this or patients did not pursue testing. I hope things are going well for you. It does get better.

I am well, at the last minute I decided on just left sided mastectomy. I am about half way through reconstruction process. (Expanders then final saline). For me it was a good decision at the time. I may consider right side mastectomy in future. But at the time was glad I had use of right hand because. The people who I thought were going take care of me got sick ( my mom and hubby were both hospitalized while I had surgery) and I had to be self reliant. All is well now. I hope you also are healing well and thanks for checking on me.
