well this friday it will be 2 weeks since my mastectomy.
FIrst my husband and I talked about recostruction, of course it was my decison...he didnt mind either way...
I am however am so HAPPY I decided to do the reconstruction.
For one reason........Not because of the "Vain" issue BUT, this is how I feel & of couse it is JMPO.
I had no idea that it was going to look this bad, I look like I got shot with a rifle at close range!
If I had to look at that everyday, ALL I would see is cancer, I think that once I get the reconstruction, I will see survival.
The pain isn't bad at all, under my armpit hurts the most....It looks a heck alot worse then it feels.
I remember 5 weeks ago, someone on here said to follow your heart, and so far I have and I am so happy with the decsions I have made although everytime I make one I second guess myself.
But it is all coming together the way I wanted it to, it is so amazing, that as undecided I was on everything, IT ALL SEEMS TO BE WORKING OUT JUST AS I WISH.
