Having surgery April 11th
Byon 03 Apr 2012
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.
