Yesterday I had my meeting with my plastic surgeon. He agreed that I would be able to have the nipple sparing mastectomy. This is good news! This means the only incision (other than one under my arm for lymph node removal) will be under my breasts. So the scar will not be very noticeable. It is truly amazing seeing how far reconstruction has come.
He also let me know that I may get lucky and have the tissue expanders on TOP of the muscle instead of under. This would make recovery time a lot faster.
Basically I call him my good doctor. He is giving my boobs back unlike that other guy. JUST KIDDING! I love my other doctor just as much. He is taking the cancer away!
I would like to point out that while the nurse was asking me why I was there, and getting all of my information, she told me that she sees more women with cancer my age and younger, than older women. I was stunned.
THIS IS WHY I’M WRITING THIS! We have to do SOMETHING to take care of our younger girls. Mammograms just don’t do it. And MRI’s are too expensive. It’s really disheartening to think about.
That is all for now. My surgery is scheduled for Monday at 1:00. Tomorrow is my pre op appointment. Shizzz is getting real y’all!
