[MOL] mastectomy following lumpectomy - avoiding radiatioon

I  had a lumpectomy 6 weeks ago.  Have not started radiation therapy because 
the biopsy scar is not yet totally healed.  Want to have mastectomy now with 
reconstruction.  I wonder if my insurance company will pay and, although this 
is what I want, if it is the right thing to do.  I really didn't have enough 
information prior to the lumpectomy to make this decision.  My lymph glands 
are clear.  I would appreciate hearing from others who  have been faced with 
this decision.  Also, please relate reference material.  Thanks.
