Hello Boogl and welcome! Hey, it is ok to be scared. That's a very normal feeling. When is your surgery? I personally opted not to have reconstruction but I have several friends that did. According to them, yes it is worth the pain. They each are very pleased w/ their new breast(s). Each of them have experienced different degrees of pain and, the first couple of days, wondered why the heck they did it. But, once the initial pain was over, they were pleased. The scars fade after awhile. I do know that they had to watch what they did very carefully for several weeks. As one gal said she let her family treat her like they queen that she always knew that she was meant to be. Hang in there. I know that there will be some of the members that will post and share their experiences w/ you.
Hi and welcome! I have no information for you, but I recall others recently talking about that procedure too. Where are you having it done? I am in Michigan, and if you check the role call post at the top, you can see a little more about us and our histories.
Welcome to our group!
Hi Debs and Lori,
Thanks for the positive response. I am going on the 20th October. I don't know what to expect during my stay in hospital - how does one get around with all those drains and what sort of clothes to take.
Thanks a million, Boogl
