nipple reconstruction just days or hours after the procedure? I cannot remember but it was not painful because i have NO nerves or feeling from the front around to my back
First mastectomy age 31, horseshoe shaped scar
Naughty tumor was around in this area. Stage II invasive ductal carcinoma.
Several spots of DCIS were found up here - that's why I opted for the mastectomy.
Prophylactic mastectomy seven months after my first (age 32 June 2001). The six months of chemo just about killed me so I begged for a prophylactic mastectomy - which my insurance and surgeon granted to me. This is a horseshoe shaped scar to match the other side - hopefully for double good luck.
Sentinel node dissection was clean. Three lymph nodes were removed and I've not had any problems with lymphedema (thank god and knock on wood).
super difficult to shave because these fabulous looking implants are like ROCKS and they do NOT move. Perky forever :)
