So the surgeon called today and my mastectomy and reconstructive process will begin Monday, July 6th.  I still have two pre-op appointments, one with the surgeon who will be doing the mastectomy (the one who knits  🙂 ) and one with the plastic surgeon.  I’m not looking forward to the pain, the drains (all 6 of them!); spending another summer somewhat out of commission.  But I am looking forward to no mammograms and no prosthesis.
