Tuesday, October 19, my nephews birthday who created my blog for me, I had surgery again. I have been waiting for this day to remove this plastic port under my other foob I've been living with for a year now. When we exchanged my expander on the left side, it didn't come out how I wanted (my surgeon and I are perfectionists and my breast surgeon didn't quite cut the way she should have) so we had more reconstruction work to do on the left. We were also finally swapping my turtle shell for an implant on the right side along with some needed reconstruction because of so much tissue damage from radiation. I woke up after surgery to the plan going accordingly, yay! Both sides were done and all seemed to go well.
Today, Friday, I finally unwrapped my package to see my goodies and so far I am pleased. I'm still swollen and uncomfortable but it feels so great to have symetricsl foobs that actually look like boobs again. I follow up with my surgeon in 2 weeks and hopefully that was my last surgery. We may need some touch ups though, we are perfectionists.
My support group continues to amaze and inspire me. My heart is so happy knowing so many family and friends think of me, say prayers for me and send positive vibes...thank you so much! Thank you to my support team at work making sure everything is covered so I can rest and recover without work stress. My luv and my mom take such good care of me during recovery, thank you for your unconditional love. I love you all xxoo
