Bit of a whirlwind for my wife and I today.
She has 4 cm tumour in her breast which will require to be removed.
We were given a few options
Have the lump removed locally and keep the breast
Cons / Cancer could come back and require future surgery.
Remove the whole breast but with the obvious trauma for her but a much greater recovery chance.
She had made the brave decision to go for a Masectomy but because of her low immune system and CCL they say reconstructive surgery using back muscle or tummy fat is too risky regarding infection and blood issues.
My question is has anyone had reconstruction in the form of an implant and is this safer / easier than above.
I love my wife dearly and to be honest I don't have any issues with the surgery what's so ever. I just want her to get better.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you x
