I haven't been on the site a lot in the last couple of years, but I do always stop by to see how everyone is doing.
Today, I can use your help.
I was diagnosed last week with a recurrence. I can't believe that I had to go in again with something I found on my own with all the PETs, CTs, MRIs, and Mammos I have had in the last 4 years.
I had thyroid cancer last year and that was easily taken care of. But this sucks!
So, now I am facing a mastectomy and reconstruction. My latest PET showed a small spot in the breast and a lymph node in my neck (which I also pointed out on my own to the doctors). They aren't sure if that is breast related or thyroid related, but it will come out either way.
Can anyone give me advice on the type of recon? I was given the tram flap option and the expander/implant option with the tram flap being the surgeon's 1st choice.
Thanks for the support ladies!
