Fri, Feb 15 10:47am · Who Else Has Decided NOT To Have Implants or Reconstructive Surgery? in Breast Cancer

I had a double mastectomy this past Wednesday and decided not to have the
reconstruction personally I felt like it was a risk that I didn't want to
endure and I'm happy for my decision, but I think everyone should make
their decision based on their own personal needs.

My radiation was 21 years ago, I felt great during and after, I was 41 at the time. I would be curious to know if anyone developed aortic stenosis of the heart valve from right breast cancer radiation? I developed it 5 years ago. My breast cancer back is now in my left breast DCIS and I'm getting double mastectomy next week.

Fri, Jan 25 5:31pm · Facing Cancer Recurrence, PTSD & Acknowledging Mental Health in Cancer

I was diagnosed 21 years ago at age 41 with DCIS non-invasive had a lumpectomy and radiation of my right breast last month I started experiencing breast discharge and a biopsy was done of my left breast duct and it was positive for DCIS non-invasive. I've made the decision to have a double mastectomy. I'm feeling very depressed about the fact that my cancer came back, I'm grateful that I had 21 years before reoccurrence, and its a early cancer, but it's still hard to cope with. I was tested for the 25 genetic mutations back in 2014 and didn't test positive for any I heard there's 47 now out there and I'm going to be retested.
