Is hormone replacement safe after prophylactic mastectomy and hysterectomy in BRCA2 positive patient?
I'm a healthy 31yo with a BRCA2 mutation. I'll be undergoing a hysterectomy & bil mastectomy soon. I've received conflicting recommendations from doctors whether it will be safe for HR after undergoing both procedures. One MD questioned "why would you want to increase your risk of breast cancer after having bil mastectomies to reduce your risk?" I understand all breast tissue cannot be removed (no matter if I choose skin-sparing or nipple-sparing mastectomies). Is this thinking correct?
