I would absolutely support legislation to require, at the very least, an over night stay with a mastectomy. I had one almost two years ago and in NY state you are kept over night. Because of complications I ended up staying 3 nights. The odd thing is that, the next morning, after developing a hematoma that worried my surgeon, a resident came in and told me I was going home that morning. I told him of my situation and he got up and left without saying another word. A classic case of the right hand not knowing what the left is doing. I have found this to be the case in more than one instance as I go through the cancer process!!! I just ran into it at the radiation center where I am being treated for a second cancer. I was given a consent form to sign AFTER going through the humiliating prep work required before one begins radiation treatment. All I was put through was in the consent, which was never gone over with me, before hand. There are lots of areas in the cancer industry that need fixing. We need to be treated as a whole person, not just a body part!!!
