  1. Celeste, we found out on Friday that one of my sisters has DCIS and will have a bilateral mastectomy mid-January at the latest. She saw a single surgeon in a single town in northern CA (San Ramon) who has done 16 bilaterals in the last two months. What is going on?
    I hope you are recovering. I would love to come see you over the next few weeks if you ever feel like a visit.

  2. Stephanie, This is terrible! I’m so sorry for your sister, and the other women…. 16 seems like a very high number. The Durango surgical center at Mercy has only done about 15 in the last year. I would be concerned about environmental causes if that is a small area, wonder how the population compares… Let me know when her surgery is, I’ll be praying for her… .. I wonder if she’s getting reconstruction? If not, maybe she and I can connect about our emotions around it all, sounds like we are having surgery around the same time. Be Well, Stephanie ❤
