Has anyone had this experience? I had 2 lumpectomies when i was dx. My Dr. told me the stats were the same for stage 3 breast cancer whether we did mastectomy or lumpectomy. Now that i'm 18 months out, which i never dreamed would happen, i'm considering doing biltateral mastectomies. what is everone's opinion? The gals that had mastectomies at first did you do reconstruction right away, with expanders in? Our what did they do for you? A PET scan showed some activity in the right breast that was affected. They said don't worry about it because it showed up on the ct scan part not the pet scan part. But, i'm still worrying alittle what they were seeing in there.
