Prophylactic Mastectomy Results

I feel such a sense of relief. I've just had the results back from my prophylactic mastectomy. It wasn't 100% clear but the news is good. They found a small 2cm area of DCIS with +1cm of clear margin. As far as my consultant is concerned I absolutely made the right decision to go ahead with the operation.

All my anxiety has disappeared. I dont wake up worrying about every lump and bump.

My story isn't over just yet. I've now been listed for exchange surgery to switch my expander for an implant and Ill need one further surgery after that to share my nipple. For now though, I can rest easy.
