Bilateral Mastectomy Surgery Today

Posted by Liz Adams @ladams92, Jan 21 6:12am

Hello Ladies,

My Mom is undergoing her bi-lateral mastectomy this morning at Mayo Rochester. I have been a fly on the wall in your discussion boards trying to understand what my Mom will be facing in her recovery as I will be her primary caregiver. I appreciate reading all of your stories and insight and thank you for being so open and honest. I have learned a lot from you beautiful warriors that have been through so much! Everyone's story is so different and all of your insight has been so helpful to prepare for what to expect.

I am please asking that anyone who is willing to keep my mom Ann in your prayers today as she undergoes her procedure.

Thank you and may God Bless you all,
Liz

My thoughts are with you and your mom.

Hi @ladams92, I'm glad that you posted today so members can journey along with you and your mom through her recovery post surgery.

As her caregiver, you might be interested in tips members shared in these 2 discussions:

You and your mom are in my thoughts.
I bet you have or will have many questions. Ask away. What's your biggest question as you wait for surgery to be over?

@ladams92 Your mom, you, and her medical professionals all will be in my prayers for the best possible outcome. May you and your mom have abundant health and happiness going forward.

My thoughts and prayers are with your mom, and your family! The Mayo Clinic Store Flower of Hope may be another great resource for her. Our staff in the store provide complimentary mastectomy bra and prosthesis fittings. Feel free to stop in and ask any questions!

@ladams92 – Wishing your mother well today! I had a right mastectomy 29 years ago. She is lucky to have you at her side! I had 3 young children then, but had a couple of friends that would cheer for me. Thinking of you two!
