If you find that your questions are not being answered, then get a second opinion. You should be made to feel comfortable by your clinician when asking questions. It is your right to the information as a patient.

In brief: Short hospital stay

The hospital length of stay following a mastectomy is usually 1-2 days without reconstruction, and 2-3 with reconstruction.
It's hard to predict the probability of complications related to copd, since that can vary from mild to severe. I recommend that you pose that question to your specific lung specialist and surgeon. Good luck.
