My personal experience is that my chest is totally numb. It is my understanding that this does not happen to everyone. I don't know and really I don't care if I am suppose to get this explicit here but I do miss sexual arousal that is elicited with the feel of having your breasts touched. There...I've said it! (BLUSH) So from that perspective I think maybe I should have had lumpectomy. But I don't dwell on it, what's done is done. I am just happy to be here.
I am sure you will make the right decision for you. Keep us posted.
