I am scheduled for surgery on December 21. I'm hoping other December surgeries will post here so we can gain from each other's experiences with planning and recuperating. I know this holiday was going to be different anyway, but having surgery during the holidays and with a surge of COVID cases is making me somewhat more anxious..
I am having a unilateral mastectomy with sentinel node biopsy and tissue expander placement. I'm still debating what I will do going forward, implant or DIEP flap. The PS said I have time to decide. I am determined to heal quickly and help my daughter with her first child due the end of January. We are so excited for her (it's a girl!)arrival!
