Shattered- Failed Re excision
My re excision report shows 18 mm of DCIS on inferior margins.The surgeon said he cant do third re excision as doing it means taking whole breast tissue and it will be as good as mastectomy .He said that his experience says that there is a lot DCIS around .Already he has taken a 9 cm wide margins
Mastectomy was not what I expected that I will end up with .The BS said I am not a candidate for DIEP as I do not have body fat .I will get an appointment with Plastic surgeon after 2 weeks
I am really depressed but when I think of ladies who choose mastectomy by choice it gives me assurance that may be by default God is doing good for me.
Anyone out there who had mastectomy and do not regret that decision .
The breast cancer journey is so over whelming to the point that now I have become numb .Today I am not even crying .
Please all of you help me .
