    For political polls. Celebrity junk belongs somewhere else.

    It most certainly goes far beyond "celebrity junk".

    Just trying to help them maintain some order. Someone getting surgery isnt exactly news.

    I don't think you're following along very well.

    It's about major elective surgery to prevent something that may or may not happen to you in the future.

    If you knew that you had an above average chance to be diagnosed with cancer, would you, if you could, have the part of your body most likely to be effected amputated before that diagnosis, in order to prevent actually getting cancer?

    Still not worthy of a political discussion. Belongs in one of the more casual forums.

    So she underwent major surgery to prevent something that may or may not have been an issue for her.

    That seems highly CRAZY to me.

    Would you undergo something that traumatic to prevent the possibility of getting cancer?

    Detected early enough aren't most breast cancer cases survivable?
    No, I would not have done that. It's a pretty solid example of what living in excessive (and unrealistic) fear can do to a person.

    I don't think they removed the surface tissue, only scooped out the adipose and some muscle to be replaced with implants. She probably doesn't look much different than a high quality boob job.

    I am not prone to irrational fear and would have done the same thing in her position. Why live with the Sword of Damocles hanging over your head?
