Chek2 genetic Mutation:
I was told I had a genetic mutation called Chek2 February of 2020. I had the testing due to my mom having breast cancer twice as well as a long family history of breast and other cancers. I was referred to an oncologist to chat about my options where he found a lump. I went through the mammogram, mri with contrast, and a biopsy. I was told what they were seeing was text book signs of cancer. I decided then that I wanted to do the double mastectomy.
I had a double nipple sparing mastectomy (wish I hadn’t saved the nips now) and expanders placed 10/6/2020.
I had an area on my right breast at the nipple that did not heal.
It opened back up and the expander was visible.
The images next are after the exchange surgery…
I had exchange surgery and fat grafting done 1/26/2021.
Overall, I’m pleased. The right side looks off to me but I’m the only one complaining about it! My surgeon says she can fix it if I still want to once I’ve healed. For reference I’m 5’6” and about 195 lbs. My implants are 650 cc smooth silicone.
