they are doing a lift at the time of lumpectomy. i was told radiation later can change size of breast but I REALLY want the healthy boob lifted at the same time. I do not want to have to do it months later. My feeling is they can come close enough & i can always go back under to fix later but hoping not to.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my left breast in Aug 2011.  Started chemo to shrink the tumor, had lumpectomy in Nov 2011, more chemo.  Radiation in April/May 2012.  Last dose of herceptin in August 2012.  Had a bilateral breast reduction/left breast reconstruction in June 2013.  Still recovering, but really like them so far :)
