Re: Bilateral mastectomy support group


I also chose to have a bilateral for similar reasons. I had DIEP reconstruction a year after my mastectomies. I am VERY happy with my reconstructed breasts. I too hated the prosthesis. I am very active and it was a pain (I had one mast at diagnosis and one was done at reconstruction)

There is a breast reconstruction site with lots of info and patient testimonials:

Wishing you the best in your decisions, they are never easy.
