Hi, apart from having idiopathic Cerebellar ataxia I am about to have a double mastectomy as I have breast cancer inboth breasts. I have had a recurrence after 18 years when I had a lumpectomy on my right breast. I am worrying about not being able to use my upper body after the op to balance myself. At the moment I hold onto a lot of walls! I use my upper body a lot to keep my balance. Has anyone else gone through this and have you any advice?
