hi DorthyK!

I had a latissimus flap in Nov.  What would you like to know?  8^)  I am having my TE swap this wed for a silicone implant.  So I had the LF in Nov. My plastic surgeon likes using the back better than the tummy because the muscle tissue/nerve endings are better/stronger. I was hoping for a tummy flap but I have too much there!  My friend had not enuf!  So it just depends.  I only had a MX on my left side.  He cut a long slit in my back where the bra love handle is and they somehow slide the tissue around and through the skin.  Compared to the MX the flap was nothing.  I have extra skin there which was the porpose while they did the TE and now he will clean it up and remove extra skin.  I will know Wed!  Good luck to you.

Yeah Tina!

Beacher - yes but only a little....I gained two inches in my waist however....dislike!

For everyone else - my left side has dropped...quite dramatically.  For those who saw my 'level' in the 4 week photo, I was beginning to drop then for sure, but now its really noticable.  I am hoping my MX side decides to follow suit.  Im trying to be patient with her.

I'm so swollen that I don't have any opinions yet on the actual size.  It's confusing all the advice to put them in a sports bra when all the sports bras are so different.  I went looking today for one that encapsulates them without a wire, but when I found one that fit the wide bottoms, it was smashing in the tops.

I checked out Bra 101 thread.  I need to go to a bigger town that has some selection.

I have an appointment Thursday with my PS for my three-month checkup from the exchange in late April. I hope I can get him to agree to a revision, if it's possible. I'm sure he will say I'm being nitpicky, and I should be thankful that I look normal in clothes, but... The left foob is lovely, with the nipple symmetrical and balanced. The right one is smaller and the nipple drops lower and points to the right slightly. Is it enough that I can see these flaws to get them fixed? Or am I just supposed to suck it up and accept that this is what I now have to look at in the mirror?

Lilah, thank you and you look amazing as well.  Yes, the ripples are not as visible now, I appreciate you looking.  JoanDavies sorry you are not happy either, don't suck it up, you are a beautiful woman who deserves symetry, if mine were so symetrical I would complain.  I may talk to PS about saline for the width. Everytime I turn the steerting wheel mine hurt on the sides and it feels weird too, expanders never felt this way.  A woman who works on my floor PS prefers saline so she will be getting saline. I tried to get PS to take my thighs, he drew circles around them prior to going for exchange(to appease me), but when I woke up purple circles still there - what do we have to do to get more taken out and off of us?  Westieluv, I wish my rep at Nordy's would have told me about the "Moving Comfort" sports bra (straps attached-no whole where strap goes through) $40.00, zips up front white amazing, I think I forgot to take a photo of me in it, I will and post it.  I took my front hook sports bra and masectomy bra to appt after exchange to get drains out and they put me back in masectomy bra (like a camisole that zips up front) its kinda pretty and at Nordy's.   I have started sleeping in my masectomy bra again.  TinaT, glad you are doing good with expansion, I told my PS he did too good of a job with my expanders and I could have made a good living showing them off (new career) and that is why I do not like my new foobs, but I was the only one who thought they looked good, this is what I am finding out now.

Westiluv   I had my exchange a few days before you , and I am pretty swollen as well.  I went looking for a sports bra that met all of the requirements.  I have a Leggs Haynes Bali outlet near me, and they carry Champion sports bras in several styles.  There is one style that has a 1 1/2 inch band at the bottom and hooks and snaps in the back with adjustable straps.  They are discontinuing the black and gray and they are half price now.  I know that they have a store online, but the ladies that work there are great to help fit you as well.  It comes in several size combinations and cup sizes.  It is called the Action shaped sports bra style 7966  for large busted women.  32-34 C/D  thru 42-44 C/D  and same sizes in D/DD.  hope this helps

Thank you trail2!  I'll look on line to see if I can find them.

I got very upsetting news last night.  My Mom's biopsy came back positive.  I didn't mention this to anyone earlier because I was praying for B9.  I'm waiting anxiously for a call from her about her consultation appointment with the breast surgeon. She had her biopsy on the day of my exchange.  I couldn't be in both places, so it was a hard day for me.  My fears for her are high.  I'll be introducing her to this site so that the wonderful women here can help support her also as she goes through treatment.  I just can't stop crying about it and I didn't get much sleep last night.

Does anyone know of other Mother/Daughters on this site that are going through BC? My Mom needs some inspiration.  She is very low right now.  She is 71 years young, but a widow.  My Dad passed away of cancer at age 65.  She lives 2.5 hours away from me.  I just want to get in the car to go to her.  Hold her hand, hug her. ...whatever..

Westie -- so sorry to hear about your mom.  I am sending you both strength and prayers.  I hope it's early stage and easily treatable!  Did you or she get tested for BRCA?  As for other mothers and daughters, I'm afraid I don't know of any; but I'm sure they exist here.  Maybe if you start a new thread seeking others it will draw them out?

Lilah,

We have not gotten the BRCA test. Waiting for her path report so I can help her look for doctors.  I sent a PM to Whippetmom to see if she had any surgeon recommendations in my Mom's area.  There is only one breast surgeon in her area and the resume is not impressive.  The surgeon is SOOO important.  She can travel some, but long travel is probably not going to work out.

The doctor mentioned surgery when she called with the path results.  My Mom's head is spinning and I'm trying to get her to slow down a bit and interview a couple of people and get opinions before taking any action.

I can't get my hands on that path report fast enough.

Thanks Shannon!  I'll check out that bra suggestion also.  I started reading Bra 101 and got bogged down.  My problem is that I don't live close to a major shopping center where there is any selection.  I like Amazon though and order from them frequently.

A new thread sounds interesting.  I want to know what Mom is facing before I would start something and get her feelings about it.  Thanks for the suggestions.

A word on bras ... I know, so trivial compared to what you're going through ...  but a word of encoruagement ... I too felt really overwhelmed when I first looked at the bra thread.  The thing that's most important is reading the header ... all the info you need is in that header.  I live in a rural area and the nearest Nordstrom's is 2.5 hours away.  I've done really well getting fitted & finding my size at local mx bra shops. Also, a Dilliard's or a Macy's may have what you need.

Hi Ladies--I have been off this board for sometime, so let me say hi to some familiar ladies and introduce myself to everyone else.  I love this site and this thread.  It has been so helpful to me in the past.  I am reading the most current posts, and I want to start by saying to Westie that I hope the best for your Mom.

I had a uni mx with expander in April '10 and implant reconstruction Aug '10.  I have been very satisfied with my results cosmetically, and I have photos posted in the picture forum.

Unfortunately, I have had a lot of discomfort with the implant.  I've done a lot of physical therapy, etc. to help with the symptoms, and I am now seeing a pain mgt doctor.  Nothing much helps and I'm beginning to believe that the implant is the problem and that it's got to go.

I see my ps on friday.  He and I have spoken at length before about this.  I want to talk to him about changing to a smaller implant and/or about possibly putting the implant over the muscle (directly under the skin).  I'm wondering if anyone here knows of anyone who's had pain/discomfort with their implants that's been solved by revising the reconstruction.  I saw the nurse practioner for my bc checkup the other day, and she says she has seen patients who've gotten relief.

I worry that I may be stuck with the pain no matter what I do--that the damage is done.

And yet...looking back, I didn't have pain with the expander.  There is something about the implant that's the problem.  I think maybe the way the silicone just sags with gravity that it puts pressure on the muscle.  The expander on the other hand, is rigid, and stays in place.  (Oh for a gummy implant!)

Deborah--you've advised so many of us on sizing, I wonder if you have any experience with this.  And I'd just like some moral support...Hi Lilah  Hi Mary.

xo to all and good health.

Beth, Sorry to hear of your Mom's cancer. My mom  also had BC and now has a rare form of leukemia and is doing chemo. It is so hard to bear, and all at the same time as our own bc struggles. I hope the two of you can be a source of comfort for eachother. I wll join the new thread "Moms & Daughters" if you decide to do it.

How is your recovery going?
