Glad you are set up for surgery. Are you having a double mastectomy? If so, others can tell you about that. I would think you'd need to be in a no kid zone for at least a week to 10 days, depending on their ages. Young ones would not be easy to care for, I would think. I was able to have a lumpectomy, but also had all my lymph nodes removed at the same time. I was feeling pretty good, but surely not up for babysitting. I would think a mastectomy would be considerably harder.
Will you need chemo? If so, please have a port put in during your surgery. Just makes things a lot easier.
