Today marks the three year anniversary of my PBM + DIEP. It has been an awesome three years. I would not have changed a thing, well, with the exception of my 'sensitivity to morphine'. Looking back, this whole experience was a bump in road, although at the time it seemed as if it was a wall, a huge obstacle to get over. I know what it feels like to be diagnosed with something that does not offer a clear solution. Because I had options I often wondered if taking the route of PBM + DIEP would be overdoing it. Now, three years later, I can continue to say that it was the best thing I ever did for myself and my family. There are no more MRIs, no more ultrasounds, no more mammograms and no more appointments with a breast surgeon. I don't miss any of that. Most of all there are no more worries about if or when breast cancer might take hold of my life. I am happy!!
