Outpatient masectomy becoming the norm in Covid times?
Had 1 of 2 surgery consults and learned my great local hospital is doing "elective" surgeries outpatient only (with max 24 hours observation from entry to exit). With no support person allowed in facility, wondering how drain training even happens. Just sharing my trepidation.
Also another unrelated learning, I should have started genetic testing STAT? Now asking for counseling to help me with decision on unilateral or bilateral, and learned it would be helpful to have genetic testing results for that discussion (plus for insurance approval if I go bilateral).
Waiting 4 more weeks for the second consult with a breast cancer oncology surgeon at the university (where I will likely get my care). No idea what their surgery capacity will be sd 4 weeks is many lifetimes in Omnicron!
Just a ramble but it felt like a bad day.
