PSA:::::: THIS BLOG WILL BE COMPLETELY HONEST, some of you may be offended.. BUT, these are my feelings and accounts of what has transpired in my life.
As many of you know I had a bilateral mastectomy on December 27, 2012. SO many people have said to me, "You are so brave", "WOW so courageous", etc.. Funny things is I wasn't any of these. Honestly, I was simply TERRIFIED and would have done literally anything to give myself better odds at being here for my husband and young boys,. ANNNND, to be VERY honest, there was no love for my former "ladies". My boobs had served their purpose. They had fed two babies, for a much longer then anticipated time frame. So for the women reading this blog, that breast fed I'm sure you can attest to the fact the "ladies" are no longer the happy perky boobs that they had been in a former life. My pre-breast cancer boobs were a HOT MESS. Here is a visual if I stood up and bent down my boobs looked like nasty tube socks, I swear, they could have hit the floor. AND do NOT get me started on my nipples..........those puppies were like Vienna sausages.
My tumor was fairly small, around a pea sized. Doctors always ask, how on earth did you find this. It was so easy to find, if I laid on my back flat, each boob would fall to the opposite side, so, yes, finding this tumor was no issue at all.
*****Thank you for reading my blog, there will be many more blogs relating to this issue
