I am starting to think ahead to surgery a bit. I have only talked to one surgeon so far, and that was at the beginning of things. She agreed with the oncologist that chemo be done first, and surgery/radiation later. I am very glad to be getting the nasty chemo part out of the way first, now that I think about it. There are so many options to look at. Do I do a double mastectomy and just be done with it? Do I go for reconstruction surgery? There is another surgeon I will have to talk to soon to get some second opinions. Questions, questions. I believe they give your body about 6 weeks to heal up after the chemo before surgery is done. That gives a little time to figure things out.
