I had mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. It's been 11 years and I'm just now going in for reconstruction. I just haven't wanted to go through another major surgery to get reconstructed. It's such a personal choice, and for me, I realized my survival was more important.
Sounds like you're having the same chemo I had. Only I had the mastectomy first. After chemo came 33 radiation treatments. It's a journey and the mastectomy is a hard part of it. Everyone is different so give yourself time to get through it. I stayed overnight in the hospital.
