They offered me shorter, but I chose longer! I was told shorter would cause more deformity and I've already shrunk at least one cup size. My cancer was under 2cm and I had a lumpectomy. This has been traumatic enough and was painful enough without getting more intense treatment. If I had to do it over I would still pick the longer treatment. .
