I received word that Diane’s breast surgeon started the procedure at 8:00 am. The time frame that we were told to expect was two hours for each surgeon and one hour in recovery. Then if all is well Diane will be sent up to her room.

We saw the breast surgeon in the prep area and she introduced her assisting surgeon. By using two surgeons the mastectomy is completed quicker, allowing the plastic surgeon as much time as he needs to complete his work. The breast surgeon informed us that the plastic surgeon we are using is pretty meticulous in his work so they like to give him that little bit of extra time.
