    Reconstruction Update

    A very dear friend shared her first thought on this site…

    “Is Sue Crazy?”

    She just thought it was a bit nuts to go so very public with this story, not knowing where it would end up and on such a personal matter.  

    Quickly she not only saw the purpose it had for me (to keep everyone up to date and stay connected easily), but it became part of her daily routine.  Many posts gave her an uplifting spirit, a motivation to conquer her own challenges and at the same time, hear “me” through the words and feel in touch.  

    I’ve actually heard from dozens of readers that they pluck out the word “cancer” or “breast”, drop in their own challenge and get motivated for change ….to start their journey and New Beginning…I must say, I really love that!!!

    So, to share it all…here’s a update on my “reconstruction”.  

    7 weeks ago, the double mastecomy removed both my breasts.  Left breast was mandatory due to the cancer in two quadrants, right breast removal was my choice.  It’s a personal choice, and to me, I prefered to safeguard my future and for my mind to be more at rest. Again, a very personal choice and to anyone else facing the decision, it’s different for each woman. 

    At the same time of the breast removal, my breast implants were put into place. One surgery, dual purpose…I called that GREAT NEWS when I first heard.  My doctor just laughed…to me, it was great news not to have to undergo surgery twice nor be completely disfigured between the two surgeries.    I choose to go with saline filled implants as there seemed to be more options and flexibility with “sizing” in terms of scaling up and down.  Silicon implants go in the one size you select and can’t be as easily changed.  But again, a personal choice and there’s a chance that I may swap out for silicon once I reach my final size.   Silicon is more firm, where saline implants have some rippling that some women don’t get used to…we’ll see where we end up.

    As part of the breast/cancer removal, there is quite a bit of skin removed.  Tied to the lack of skin left to cover the area, the implants are put into place only partly “filled”.  As healing and incisions close you go back for phases of “filling”.  I’ve not reached the “filling” stage yet.  I had thought it would have started at yesterday’s appointment, but there were still more stiches to remove.   So I get to have three more weeks as is…OK by me as things are starting to feel more normal, less tight and decreased numbness.

    OK, so there’s the Breast Reconstruction 101 for those that want to know it all :)
