This is a personal decision made by an individual who is given the options, evaluates them and makes a decision for themselves. It is no one elses business what decision an individual makes.
I agree with Kathy. No one can make that decision for you. I don't think anyone really knows what they would do until they are actually in that situation.
Agreed. I lost breastsm but not by choice!
We cannot possibly put ourselves in this difficult position. It is most certainly a personal decision and the opinions of strangers mean absolutely nothing.
I agree with Kathy 100%!
agreed, never would have thought I'd make this choice for a Double M, but here I am preparing for surgery on tuesday...........
I agree I don't believe I could be a part of a decision making process that does not directly include the person this would affect. God bless and help you in your time of need, and I pray that the best decision will be revealed and accepted with courage and faith.
Kathy, that is exactly what I was thinking. My sister had breast cancer and made her own decision, and she is fine now, thank God.
Leave it up to the woman in question, we have breast cancer in our family two of my sisters contacted it sadly one didn't survive the other through early detection is fine after 20 years.I have 5 other sisters and we get checked every year even though we are now in our 60's & 70's the fight must go on.
Look Gc MAF Therapy first ,,,,, its worth reading about ,,, might not have to destroy your body.
Thirty years ago I joined a breast cancer trial at a cancer hospital in London. For 7 years I took a tablet every day. It turned out it was Tamoxifen, not the placebo. I have recently heard that tamoxifen greatly reduces breast cancer for women with a family history (7 aunts and my sister). I am absolutely thrilled to have been part of this trial now that the results have been shown to prevent it. Needless to say I do not have breast cancer.
If by having it done you can continue living like before I believe the right decision was made. Of course it is a decision that would need to be talked about with your Family members and of course your doctor, "BUT" if anyone decides to have this done I believe they know they are making the right decision.
Even with breasts removed, you are not guaranteed the cancer would not develop in other tissues...enjoy your breasts until is not possible...prevention is wise, not to put the band before the wound.
Agree with Kathy and Pat - Just survived breast-cancer.
I had breast cancer. First I had one breast and decided to ultimately have both removed. Now I have two great reconstructed boobs and no risk. I can live free and happy and how great its that?
It is the most ridiculous thing to do. When you fear something you are surely attracting it in your life whether in this form or another. Because what ever you fear gets bigger and more prevalent in your life. Instead of removing the breast such women need to cleanse their minds this way you are not getting to the root of the problem, you are only removing the cause and doing more damage.
I lost one breast and at the time I asked my Doctor about removing both. Her answer was NO> that could just lead to more chance of infection and complications. I'm watched closely now and if that needs doing later , we'll cross that bridge when necessary.
