    While i respect your choice, what i would do is keep them and opt for thorough ongoing screening.

    I would remove them in exchange for peace of mind. Good luck on your journey…great strides are being made with research and each day you are here, more cures are being discovered.

    I would remove them in exchange for peace of mind. I would be too worried that screening might miss something and breasts are something that aren’t usually visible anyway, so with clothes on, nothing would look different. Good luck on your journey…research is finding cures each day so I pray you have a long and happy life.

    I would wait a year or two to let my body heal from previous treatment. I have not had reconstructive surgery yet (after 2 years) because I don’t feel that my body is ready for more surgery.

    However, your worry is YOUR worry, and that’s very personal, private, and individualized.

    I worry more about allopathic cancer treatment killing me than cancer killing me.

    So I do what reduces my worry and I would invite you to do the same – whatever reduces YOUR worry.

    I, too, have the BRCA mutation (as does my 27-year old daughter). I had breast cancer in my right breast and opted to have both breasts removed in early 2011 with reconstruction at the same time and have not regretted that decision at any time. It is a long process (depending on which type of reconstruction you decide on), but (in my opinion) it is well worth the peace of mind. My only advice is to do what your heart and mind tell you to do. EVERYONE is different and has their own opinions . . . but do they really matter in your decision? I don’t think so . . . and definitely didn’t in mine! Thoughts and prayers in your continuing journey. Thank you for putting into words what I have so often felt!
