What an amazing person... we just had one of our anesthesia docs who's wife did a preventive double mastectomy. She had the markers already and it runs in her family... she just recently did it... and she had a complete preventive hysterectomy as well.

I don't know if I am really high risk yet or not. I was going to get a baseline mammogramm when I was 35, but then I got pregnant/was pumping/pregnant/and just finished pumping again. You have to wait 4-6 months after breastfeeding to get a mammogram so I will be scheduling it soon. I have some of the same risk factors such as our grandmother having had it and I was on The Pill for quite a few years. The breastfeeding helps reduce my risk and we'll see how my mammogram comes out. I used to be pretty fibrous myself, but since I have had my kids it seems to be better so I don't know how they will be able to read my mammogram. I would do the same surgery if my risk is as high. Thanks ladies

Wow, that must have been a hard decision and a hard conversation to have- hopefully this will be start of a new relationship with your sister.

My grandmother also had breast cancer, but my doctors have never brought up anything about early testing for me. My mom is 65 & if she ever develops it, I think I will be calling my doc & letting them know asap.

Thoughts & prayers that the surgery & recovery go well!
