Re: Recently diagnosed

Hi there just wondering if you have had your reconstruction yet? 

 

I found out two weeks ago I had DCIS after my first mammogram in shock still am! It was a 8cm cluster of calcification so I had a mastectomy last Thursday still in shock not had time to process any of it? Not sure how to feel! I’m having reconstruction with implant I currently have a expander in and not sure if I need radiation yet 😔
