Double Mastectomy, side effects and be aware during different recovery years
In 2015 I was diagnosed with right breast cancer and had mastectomy.
In 2020 I am considering left breast mastectomy instead of reconstruction because of prevention and congenital lower back medical condition and pain.
I have been advised to look out for skin cancer around the wound area.
I am afraid and like to know please:
- the side effects of double mastectomy during the difference recovery years
- what to be aware after double mastectomy
- does the constant tingling and pain always stay?
Thanks so much for sharing your experience.
With much appreciation
Welcome. I'm sorry to hear about your breast cancer.
I haven't had mestectomy (or breast cancer for that matter), but hopefully someone who has will be along soon.
How are you going now after the mastectomy?
