Hi! I am going in for a bilateral mastectomy on November 12. There were two positive biopsies of ILC on my right side. Genetic testing was positive for the CHK-2 gene so am doing a bilateral. I am having the pre-pectoral reconstruction done at the same time with air-filled tissue expanders. Any sisters out there going through something similar this month?

The link-hopefully!Hey there. I just had my UMX last month for my ILC. In the surgery forum there is a November 2018 group someone has started. It is nice to have a group to follow along with you! I am going to try to link it but I am not sure I will get it right. LOL Best wishes on your upcoming surgery!
