About Me: Female, State of Confusion, member since Jan 2009
In 2008 I had invasive lobular carcinoma, stage 3, two nodes involved. Second mastectomy in 2009 followed by DIEP reconstruction. I am a firm believer in mastectomy when cancer has been diagnosed. It's crucial to remove as much breast tissue as possible to reduce the od
[More]ds of recurrence. I didn't have someone in my life that had the experience in this to help me when I was making decisions. Now I try and help others as much as I can, to be a friend who's walked in their shoes. Everyone has to make choices they can live with, without regrets.
Just wanted to wish my MedHelp friends all the very best in the coming new year! I am so grateful to all the help you've given me in the past and all you continue to do for the Forum. I hope you're happy and healthy and hope that continues for you and your loved ones in 2013!
