Please give feedback on DIEP procedures. I'm newly diagnosed with BC.Lumpectomy and SNB on 5/1.

Hi there anon,
Thanks so much for your post. I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I think you’ll find the handbook from the Johns Hopkins Breast Cancer Center helpful. While it’s written for professionals, it provides some great information on the advantages of one surgery vs another in what seems to be straightforward style that I think you'll appreciate.

It’s written by Lillie Shockney who is the director at the Johns Hopkins Breast Cancer Center and who frequently answers questions for us in our community. I think you’ll find a lot of great information here.

Can you please let us know if this information was helpful?

Also, if anyone has had this procedure, please share your experiences here.
