Thanks for the time that you put in here and other places for us to ask questions. I know that you like to keep the responses and questions generic but I am in a bit of a time crunch.
I had a mast back in 2003 and am now facing another one. I have a few suspicious lumps and have already had 4 core biopsies and 3 excisional (sp) ones and frankly I am tired of the roller coaster and my now remaining frankenboob. Had a cramogram today and of course up pops a bunch of stuff. They think they are cysts but been there done that and have the scars to prove it.
I am on the gulf coast and the wonderful surgeon is leaving the middle of June and has limited OR time so I am potentially looking at surgery pretty quick.
My question to you is not knowing at this point what my options are with respect to recon does it make sense to have the surgeon leave as much skin as possible for future recon or does it not matter at this point?
The original mast on the right side has really none to spare so I know that side would be a full redo but I have the option with the left and was curious from the recon point of view with respects to your practice is it worth having as much left as possible to work with?
Thanks in advance and I apologize if I am out of line for asking such a pointed question in this forum.
