Today felt very confusing to me. I began to have 2nd thoughts about the type of reconstruction I had chosen. So I began to read some of the literature I have, and I talked to people. In the end, I’m back to where I think I’m ok with the decision to have the mastectomy and go more slowly with the reconstruction decisions.
I’ll wake up without a breast though :-( - but I’m ok with that, I think.
The surgery is scheduled for Monday, December 17th.
Dr. Rimmer is the surgeon,
...and Dr. Lickstein is the plastic surgeon.
I feel that they are both very competent and compassionate doctors.
