hi, new to the group, i dont have breast cancer but my grandmother does, she is like my mother she raised me along with my great grandmother. She is really worried about what she is going to have to do and i would like to ask some questions on her behalf.
Her main question is for anyone who's had a masectomy, atm she has a choice of a lumpectomy or total masectomy, but she is terrified of it coming back but doesnt want to loose her balance ect, she says she could care less about recontruction to make her look even she is 73 yrs old.
She would like to know from anyone who had a masectomy if they could go back and have a lumpectomy instead would they, and i sposed vice versa if anyone has had a lumpectomy would you have rather had a masectomy and gotten it as she calls "over it". This will be the second time she has had cancer but first time in her breast the first was in her cervix and she had a total hysterectomy and was fine. any opinions and help woould be greatly appreciated so i can help her through this.
