In July of 09, I had a breast reduction.  I thought I was in heaven, I finally had a smaller bust size that would improve my quallity of life.  But, on August 26th,  I was called by my Doctor and told that my pathology had come back positive for Bi-Lateral breast cancer (DCIS).  After a whirlwind of appointments, on October 19th I had a Bi-lateral mastectomy by Dr. E MacIntosh followed by immediate Diep Flap reconstruction by Dr. E.Buchel. I've had to have a few touch-ups but am happy with the results.  I still have some numbness.  I didn't require any radiation or chemo.  I'm beeing managed with Tamoxifen. I look forward to each day with hope and a little bit of worry but I do my best to stay positive.....
