I'm sorry you have to go through this.I had a bi-lateral mastectomy with a TRAM flap reconstruction 3 years ago.The short term recovery wil be hard,but the long term will be worth it.Your kids will have their mom for a long,long time.You are young and otherwise healthy and that will help your recovery time also.You are so fortunate to have a loving husband and mom.Kids know when mommy is sick and will be considerate of your needs.My thoughts and prayers are with you for a full and speedy recovery.View Thread
