To reconstruct with mastectomy or wait
Hi, I'm a new member, diagnosed with High grade DCIS in the right breast. I'm a fairly big breasted woman and need to decide quite quickly to have one breast removed or both, as the left breast is ok at the moment, also to have reconstruction at the time of the mastectomy or to wait a while. The surgeon tells me that if I wait for reconstruction - because she doesn't do reconstruction she can't save any skin and this will be an issue for reconstruction at a later date. I live in a regional area and would have to go to Melbourne if I want both done at once. I would like to talk to anyone who found themselves with this dilemma as making the decision is doing my head in!!
