Difficult Decisions: Breast Reconstruction


After a breast cancer diagnosis, you have many decisions to make, several of which come fast and furious.  One of those complex choices may be breast reconstruction--if you want to have it, when you may want to have it, and what kind of reconstruction is best for you.

During this video, Clara N. Lee, MD, MPP, associate professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, offers insight into what your doctor should understand about your health and lifestyle to provide you the information and support you need to make the best decision. She discusses the differences between reconstructive surgeries and what different reconstruction choices may mean down the road.

You also hear from a panel of people like you about their own reconstruction decisions, their stories, and the impact their reconstruction choice has made on their lives.
