Coping with change, making your plan
After a mastectomy, you have several choices that can help you become comfortable with the changes in your body. They are all options with benefits to each approach. What is best for you and your body may not be what is best for another woman.
If you think you will opt for a breast reconstruction, you should speak with your medical team before you have the lumpectomy or mastectomy, even if you plan to wait until later to have your breast reconstruction.
