Mastectomy a year later

Hello :)
I found this forum so helpful when I was researching and trying to figure out what the heck was going on in my boob. I wanted to post a link to my story and my journey into a mastectomy and recovery afterwards. A mastectomy was the best decision in my case, but since this disease is so unique it might not be the best decision for you, but I share my story as encouragement that you are not alone through your struggle with IGM.

You are not alone!! You are brave and strong!

I am contemplating a bilateral mastectomy, and I am looking for information that will help me decide.

I hope you are doing well and are enjoying a normal life again.
