Has anyone had a Goldilocks mastectomy
I have been diagnosed with 2 IDC lumps in right breast. One is estimated to be at least 4 cm. The other is about 2 cm. ER/PR+ her2-. I just met with my surgeon. She and the plastic surgeon think that something called the Goldilocks mastectomy might be just right for me because I’m 64 and not interested in any reconstruction that requires additional surgery. Has anyone out there had this done? The result is something they call a breast mound. No nipple, in my case. It looks like something between flat and an A cup. I was very concerned about implants making me an old lady with perky little headlights that defy gravity. The Goldilocks thing is made of my own tissue so it sags with the rest of me.
Also, does having 2 largish lumps make the treatment more aggressive?
I have a PET scan scheduled in a week and a half. There’s no reason for me to be concerned about that but I am, of course.
