Dr. ANIGIAN came highly recommended! I wore he and his staff out with a gazillion questions but they were always amazing and super professional and managed to answer all of my questions even through the high struggle! I AM STILL a work in process because I just got a bilateral mastectomy. I had a breast oncologist take care of that part of my surgery (yes she was awesome too, what can I say, I know how to pick 'em) and then just like a wrestling match, Dr.A was tagged in! Well not really but you get where I am going. Any who for now I have tissue expanders and everything looks great so far, I will be updating with photos

my first fill today

just a little entrance for my first fill
I was so nervous but per usual Ruth the nurse was super comforting and bam I got some saline and it was a successful fill. Here are some more photos of my ongoing reconstruction! Ps. I feel like I am a walking talking water bed. Love it

Diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer in January! Chemotherapy. ..check
Reconstruction part one...check! I have had great doctors and I am grateful and ready to start the next step! The next step will involve taking my tummy and turning it in to a nice pair of breast! I think it will be a Diep flap and honey let me tell you, there is plenty to give away! If only kicking cancers butt came with a stripper pole! Clutching my pearls. Hehe

Thank you so much for sharing. You have a WONDERFUL attitude and that will help you the most through this journey. Your PS is doing an amazing job and you will love it when the "belly migrates to the breasts"!!! No personal experience here, buy very good friend went through similar reconstruction with great results. We have an entire group of PS that are dedicated to this tiype work and give you multible options. Things have changed so much for the better since I graduated from Nsg School in 1961 !! Then it was the ugly bra with some type of pad stuffed in. Good luck and keep us posted

I'm sure your positive attitude has something to do with kicking cancer in the butt! Do you know about how many cc's you got in your first fill? How long until your next fill? Hoping the pain is somewhat manageable. We would love to see the rest of your was too short...we're anxious to see what happened next! ;)

Thank you for taking the time to share your inspirational story on RealSelf. I know many women will appreciate it too when they're researching breast reconstruction.

I'm so sorry you have had 4 surgeries, I truly hope that you are ok and everything is going better for you! I myself still have a long road. I just found out that I have to do 6 and a half weeks of radiation therapy! Oh well I must keep it going positively

Thank goodness your triple negative was caught relatively early! Your reconstruction so far looks great. So excited for you - new breasts and tummy lipo. Unfortunately, my reconstruction is a nightmare after 4 surgeries.
