This is the first I have heard of a Tramogram. What exactly is it? After my appointments today, I WILL be having the mastectomy and reconstruction - Tramflap I am guessing. Have to get the appointment set up with the PS whenever I can get in to see him. Radiologist suggested I may want to have the "good' breast removed as well and two new boobs built alike. Don't know if Blue Cross will agree however. Will be waiting until after this grandbaby comes (in the nest couple of weeks) and before the next one comes in September to have this done. Another thing my radiology onc said is that because of the way my skin reacted to radiation, it may take longer for the healing process when I have this procedure done also. Oh Joy of Joy's.
Luci, if you or someone can give me a little more insite on the Tramogram, and what else to expect, I would be very grateful. Thanks!
I'd really be interested in reading the article too, especially now where I will be having the mastectomy and reconstruction done.
Thanks, Luci for all the info you provide.
I just sent you an email, Luci. Thanks!
I have been having a tramogram for the past 3 years. Last year I went to a new place and the tech had never heard of it but didn't give me a hard time. I had the info from Univ of Mich at home and faxed to her so she would know all the details. I think it makes sense to do it and was so glad when I found about it from someone on this board. It will be time for another one in a few months, time goes by so fast. It is five years this month that I was dx, surgery was in June 2000. MK can you believe that?
