 I am having my surgery Wednesday the 11th, pending my mammogram results come back ok.  I am really nervous but excited.  I'm also worried that the mammogram will postpone things.  I went last week for one and they called me back because things had changed???   They definitely have changed.  I've lost 55 lbs in the past two years -- 6 inches from my breasts. There is simply nothing left in there.  I have two boys and a wonderful supportive husband.  We are not telling anyone about the surgery.  They boys are satisfied with the "lady stuff" explanation.  I am worried about being able to keep this from my extended family though.  They would not understand and it would cause more grief that it is worth.  Besides, its my body.  I have struggled with my body image my entire life.  I never imagined that once I got to my ideal weight I would be left with so much loose skin and saggy empty breasts.  I have never had surgery this extensive before either.  Any advice and encouragement will be greatly appreciated.
