Aug 28, 2015 · I need to have a mastectomy and am considering a double mastectomy in Breast Cancer

I need to have a mastectomy and am considering a double mastectomy to reduce my chances of ever getting breast cancer again. I would love to get responses letting me know if you had a single or double and your reason why. It’s a very hard decision to make and I really need to hear from others who have already gone through this. Thank you.

Thank you for your encouragement.  I got through the bone scan ok.  Probably going to have surgery the first week of October.  I’m keeping the faith!!!

Did you have a bone scan? Every time I have another test ordered I think the worst. I’m pretty frazzled today.

Thank you for communicating with me. I’m pretty freaked out right now and just trying to stay calm and preparing to make decisions.

Lula, what made you decide to have a single mastectomy instead of a double? Are you concerned that the cancer may reappear in your other breast later? I am trying to decide which way to go. But, I don’t want to go through this process ever again.

I have recently been told I have breast cancer. I just had an MRI and am waiting to see a specialist. My question is if the cancer has spread to your lymph nodes is the cancer still curable?
