I got a distressed call from a friend who is recovering from her lumpectomy. She didn't realize that the doctor would take so much tissue and leave her with such an indention in her breast. Cancer is hard enough without feeling like you just didn't have all the details before you had surgery. Lumpectomy, Mastectomy, Bilateral Mastectomy - get all the facts before you make your choice. Ask to see pictures, ask for a plastic surgeon consult BEFORE your surgery. Then make the choice that you feel good about and ask for the results you wish.
