Hi Laurie...sorry for your diagnosis but welcome to the site. I was diagnosed in April of 2012. I initially had a lumpectomy and after I did some research, I went back and had a bilateral mastectomy with reconstructive surgery. I remove both breasts and decided to go with implants. I do not regret my decision my life is basically the same as it was before my diagnosis. I was stage 2A.... meaning my tumor was large but it was contained in the breast. I had clear margins and no node involvement...... I made the decision for peace of mind. It's a very personal choice and once you make it do not second-guess yourself move forward with what ever gives you peace.
Feel free to ask me any questions.... I have no problem giving answers.
