Breast Replacement Surgery
If all goes well, I will wake up after 12+ hours of surgery, with breasts. Yea, it's actually my own fat, but it works for me. My friends are coming by on this Sunday to help me "feed the flap" for my once-in-a-lifetime "Feed the Flap" potluck party.
So, back to breast replacement surgery. That's really the picture I want to paint for myself. I think all my life I will think of mastectomy as the scarred chest of the brave women who went before us. I can only wonder what will be available to our children if they are faced with the risk of breast cancer, hopefully a cure is just over the horizon.
