Well, Debbie, I'd be a bit puzzled about just how you'd get a mammogram, with your breasts gone. It's true that a mastectomy leaves a bit of breast tissue - perhaps 10%. But it would seem difficult to find enough to physically be pressed between the two plates of the mammogram machine, wouldn't it? I'd rely more on the advice of your surgeon and oncologist to make the call on this one; your surgeon knows a lot more about breast tissue than your gynecologist, and your oncologist is directing any treatment going forward. So if both of them thnk you can go without mastectomies, while being aware of how to check for any changes around your scar tissue or on your chest, then I'd listen to them. Take care- PJH
