Pregnancy after Double mastectomy
I am wanting to know if there is anything I should consider besides being unable to breast feed about getting pregnant after a double mastectomy?
I am impatiently waiting my biopsy results for suspected DCIS and am hoping that we will be able to get away with the surgery and no other treatment, we were trying to get pregnant when all of this kind of stopped us in our tracks.
Due to my being BRCA1 positive I am considering doing the DM even if the result is negative as I have had too many biopsies and scares and I really dont want to go through this level of stress during pregnancy. The issue is will having the DM affect my ability to get pregnant, will it through out my normal hormonal balance and disrupt my periods? I have asked a few doctors that recommend waiting until after I have finnished my family but only say so that I have the option of breast feeding, but they are not living through the anxiety and my hubby is going nuts!
Any thoughts would be appreciated, you are all strong beautiful women and I am so greatful that I have found this site as I have felt quite isolated over the past couple of weeks.
