Welcome, Ailurophile. This is a pretty quiet thread. Don't think anyone has been here since last summer.

Even though I live in L.A. now, I'm originally from Irvine. Don't get back there very often. Most of my family has left the O.C.

Hope all is going well for you, and that your treatment is effective and tolerable.

I am very keen to have direct to implant reconstruction instead of expanders. I can't find a PS in San Diego who does this.

Does anyone have a recommendation?

I believe Dr. Kruper from City of Hope in Duarte (near Pasadena) does that. I have a consultation with her in 9 days.

Anyone in need of a decent recliner for recovery? It's served me well, but its time has come. Tan color, functions properly and reclines well, swivels, but does squeak. Available for pick up in Pasadena, CA. Wishing you well.

My mom who's 71 years old just got diagnosed with IDC from a biopsy on her left breast for a 1cm tumor behind her nipple. I live in Altadena and would love to connect with others in the area to learn more about surgery prep and for support. Thanks, Cherry

Dear cherrycow, we're sorry for your mom's diagnosis, but very glad you've found us! You may find some forums here to be of interest to her and you, like:

And there is a forum for those Caring for Someone with Breast cancer where you might find support for yourself.
