What Are Your Best Tips for Before and After a Mastectomy?
Hello and Happy New Year. I am scheduled for a mastectomy of the left breast on January 23. I have a 9cm tumor. They will remove my right breast in a later surgery, after radiation and chemo as dictated by my pathology report after surgery. Not sure why they won’t do both at once but whatever. Who else has had separate surgeries? Is this common? I’m preparing for surgery by getting in the best physical shape possible (light arm weights, aerobic exercise, sensible eating) but am hoping you breast surgery warriors have some helpful advice. Thank you. PS I am scared to death tbh
