Bi-lateral masectomies suck.. the drains suck.. the losing simple freedoms suck. It saved my life though. Even with all the pain, the things that have upset me about this, I would advise anyone in my position to do the same thing. My final pathology came out great… I’m CANCER free! We will not call remission till May, I have to have a pet scan and bone scan. I’m excited for that chance to ring the bell, to know i survived this. This past Friday we started expanding the tissue expanders further .. this is a slow long process. After I reach 600 CC’s , they will let me heal a little further then put in my permanent implants. I still have plenty of stuff left to get through but I’m winning this fight.
