I opted to have a double mastectomy following my diagnosis of breast cancer. I tried to consider the advantages of reconstruction all through chemotherapy but I just couldn't find a good reason. I tried to find a good reason to be fitted for and wear prosthesis but I just couldn't! The right solution for me was to have no reconstruction and just be in my body as is...flat. When discussing options with my oncologist and my breast surgeon I had to bring it up and insist on NO RECONSTRUCTION, EVER. I had to insist several times. I choose breastless AND braless. My reason for posting is to promote the option of mastectomy with no reconstruction. Why isn't this common as an option?
