Just diagnosed 2nd primary same breast, 16 years later.
Just received Second diagnosis, same breast after 16 years. DCIS this time, last time Invasive, high grade, clear nodes, Lumpectomy, chemo, radiation in 2006. Will see surgeon in late April 2022. Likely not a candidate for more radiation to left breast. Assuming a mastectomy will be needed, and trying to decide if I should undertake DIEP flap reconstruction. Lots of differing info out there. I am 57 years old and in good health otherwise. Afraid of long term pain and hiding of new reoccurrences…Happy to have the support so evident in these forums!
