Necessities

These are some amazing recommendations from other women who have gone through Bilateral Salpingo Oophorectomy (BSO) and Prophylactic Bilateral Mastectomy (PBM)/Double Mastectomy.

PRE-SURGERY

  • Successful Surgery Meditation CD. Listen first am and last pm for 1-2-4 weeks prior to surgery. The woman who recommended this said she was incredibly calm at the time of each surgery. UPDATE: I can now attest to the effectiveness of this CD. I had my BSO in August and started listening to the CD on my iPhone around 10 days before. Belleruth’s voice became my teddy bear by the time I was wheeled into surgery.
