By: Brandy (Korman) Haslam
What are the breast reconstruction options if you also have lupus?
When lupus patient Paula Lindsey found out she had breast cancer, she was devastated. Not only did she have to worry about her ongoing battle with lupus, she now had to make crucial decisions regarding her treatment options.
Since lupus affects the immune system, surgery can be worrisome and decisions to move forward with breast reconstruction after mastectomy can be even more overwhelming.
In this testimonial, Paula talks about her journey through breast cancer and ultimately, through breast reconstruction with Dr. Chrysopoulo.
