Hey Debbie, I am sure everything will go through fine with your insurance, every time something was offered that was "extra" my husband would ask, does insurance pay for that?? So I understand, but if I were you I wouldn't worry, you have BC and my doctors told us that insurance pays. Definitely ask for the lipo around the underarm area, I would! About the pain, yes, I feel a lot better than I did right after the surgery, now I am just Itchy, between the healing and the medication I have to say the itchiness at times is crazy. Like you I counted down the days to my surgery date, it was hard sometimes.
Beekc....Like you I am not looking forward to taking tamoxifen, I will be seeing my BC oncologist in the next few weeks, I know that is part of the plan. I am wondering if the benefit will be worth it. Good luck with your surgery, its so close now
april_bc...good luck with your surgery, I am sorry this happened to you so young. Try not to be nervous, I know it is easier said than done...I was crying as they were taking me back, I was so emotional....so I completely understand. You and all the ladies on here will get through surgery and on to recovery!
saltmarsh.....hope you are hanging in there, having to go from a lumpectomy to a mastectomy....I can't imagine. Everything about this journey is horrible but I am thankful for this thread and you guys. I have a friend who has recently had a complete mastectomy, when I got my diagnosis I reached out to her, she was great, she told me that she has been able to find little ways to make "living with it" easier, one way is that she gets to choose her size, she has her "going to church" size and she has her "night on the town" size....that actually made me laugh through my crying.
