Hello there. I am hoping to form a group of those who live in the surrounding area. Perhaps to get together at some time but also simply to understand more of what the other's are going through. Perhaps some of us have treatments at the same facilities. Some of us may suffer with the same symptoms during seasonal changes.

I am in SW Ohio. Hoping to get to know many of you.

Hello, fellow Ohioans. I'm new to the board and newly diagnosed. I have decided to be treated at the Stefanie Spielman Center at OSU/James. Team consists of: Drs. Farrar, Cabiling and Ramaswamy. Looking for feedback on any of them. We have been very pleased with Spielman and each of the doctors thus far.

Waiting for genetic testing results before making final decision regarding surgery. Right now tentative plan is unilateral mastectomy of left breast with DIEP flap reconstruction, hopefully skin and nipple sparing. If test come back BRCA+ I may opt for bilateral, but am torn between DIEP flap or extenders followed by gummies. I'd love to hear from anyone who has decided to go with either option and why.

Thanks!

I'm not sure of your age, but am guessing you're on the young side given the genetic testing...but I have three young kids. The youngest was 8 months old when I had surgery. That was the HARDEST part of recovery by far - not being able to pick him up and such. Not sure your circumstance. I'm glad I did the recon when I did - but it was rough. If I did it over again, I wouldn't make a different decision.

Jenw, welcome! I'm not in the area so not knowledgeable of those doctors. Glad you found this sight though, as they have much to offer.
