If you have had or are considering mastectomy, you may be thinking about whether breast reconstruction is right for you.

To help you make the most informed decision, we invite you to join us and our tweeps for a Twitter Chat on Wednesday, October 19, Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day.

During this BRA Day chat, a panel of medical experts, advocates and people who have considered breast reconstruction will talk about aspects of the surgery that aren’t often discussed, including

  • Social and financial barriers to getting breast reconstruction
  • Expectations about outcomes and physical recovery from mastectomy or reconstruction
  • Changes to your body over time from breast surgery

Use #LBBCChat to follow and join the chat.
