So grateful for finding this group... I am at the crossroads right now between lumpectomy or double mastectomy, so I would like to solicit your opinions, experiences, and thoughts about it. Because with lumpectomy, there's a big probability that this cancer will recur, and if it happens when I'm in my 70s, I don't think I would have the same stamina and the guts to undergo all these procedures that I'm undergoing now. So my question is from your experience there, has there been a recurrence of breast cancer after mastectomy? And follow up question is, did you still undergo radiation after double mastectomy? Any help would be much appreciated.
