I just recently had a partial mastectomy (3 days ago) and I'm having a little trouble dealing with my new look :) i had a Phyllodes tumor in my left breast that was approximately 2x5 cm so with the margin of tissue they removed, it feels like a good chunk is missing. I never really considered myself as vain, but I find myself looking at reconstructive options a lot more closely. I have no issues with my diagnosis or anything, I really feel lucky compared to what it could have been. Just curious if anyone has had any experience or advice
