Almost 3 years ago to the day, I had bilateral reconstruction with lat flap & expander on bc side and just expander on "healthy" side. They've never really matched as the non-bc side has always been much bigger because it had so much more tissue at recon time. I finally decided I was going to try to get them matched up better. I figure I've done this much that I hate to stop before they are the "best" they could be.
 
Would appreciate any extra prayers/vibes you could send my way. It's been a while since my last surgery and I'm not exactly looking forward to it...lol!
 
Hugs,
Julie

Thank you for your thoughts. Yesterday went well and I was feeling really good. He put a smaller implant in my right side and took some of the extra tissue out. He did some other minor "tweaking" with the nipples, etc. Today I am really sore and just trying to take it easy.

Again, thank you for your thoughts and prayers. God willing that's the last surgery for me...

Hugs,
Julie

Hi Julie! Glad things went well. I hope you are more symetrical now. Remember, swelling can take a few months to go all the way down so try no to worry! Good luck! Frayda
