Hi all, looks like I found the right place to be. I was diagnosed at the end of May 2009 at age 45. I had a left mx in late June with a TE, and I began the fill process in July. Because I'm not very big, I think the fills are done - at least I hope so. I see my PS this week and I hope we can schedule the exchange surgery for November. I'm curious how he's going to get me symmetrical. He doesn't seemed worried, but he doesn't have to lug around one floppy boob and one brick boob for three more months. Part of me is sorry that I didn't go with a bi-lateral, but my BS talked me out of it. My daughter (who has been my rock through this ordeal this summer) just moved to college two hours away, so I'm really missing her support. My 16 yr old son and my DH have also been a great source of strength. I just hate that my family has to deal with this too, but I'm so glad they are here for me. And if all this hasn't been difficult enough, I just found out that my job is ending in November and I'll be transitioning to a new organization. I don't have to move (thank goodness), but my health insurance will change, which is why I want to get that exchange surgery scheduled soon. I can always count on the ladies on BCO who laugh with me, cry with me and understand the venting we all have to do at times.
