We often have inquiries from our clients about whether or not they should pursue breast reconstruction post cancer treatment. Many women do go that direction, but we hear from a lot of women who wonder if they made the right decision. Our goal is to give people enough information to make the choice that fits them best. Our program, titled My Breasts, My Choices will touch on:
• Benefits of breast reconstruction
• Important things to think about (including timing, scarring, lack of sensation, complications from surgery, length of recovery, pain)
• Breast reconstruction alternatives (using prosthesis or form, going flat)
Dr. Vera Packard (Executive Director of the Lazarex Cancer Foundation) will speak and there will also be a presentation from Marita Trobough who is the owner of The Next Step Boutique about the products (different kinds of breast forms, prostheses, bras, camisoles, swimsuits, etc) that are available for all women who are dealing with breast cancer surgery.
