My Journey with breast reconstruction after mastectomy
By rachel_joy on 13 Mar 2013
Hi everyone! My name is Rachel. I'm 22, living in Santa Monica, CA. I'm BRCA2+ and last year (exactly a year ago today, actually) I had a prophylactic double mastectomy with tissue expander reconstruction at UCLA. A few days after my mastectomy I started a blog called Ticking Time Bombs to document my experience. The URL is http://www.tickingtimebombsblog.com I've shared some of the details of my story on a RealSelf My Journey: http://on.realself.com/my-journey-why-i-got-a-double-mastectomy-at-21/ I now have 800 cc style 45 silicone implants and I love them!
