Breast Reconstruction After Mastectomy - Dr Chrysopoulo Radio Interview
Posted Feb 10 2009 12:40pm
It was an absolute pleasure to talk to DeLeon and Travis on "DeLeon Dialogue" last night.
Breast cancer survivor DeLeon and cervical cancer survivor Travis talk frankly with their guests about quality of life as cancer survivors in remission. They discuss side effects, spirituality, mastectomy, sexuality, health and wellness, self-esteem, food, exercise, relationships, and everything else in between.
Last night the one-hour show was about "breast reconstruction after mastectomy". We managed to cover a lot of ground - we talked about the various cutting edge breast reconstruction options currently available, breast implants, the impact of radiation therapy on reconstruction, recovery from surgery, and insurance coverage for reconstruction.
