I am 5 months post mastectomy. I am about 3/4 of the way through Chemo and my spouse has left me. I am not feeling real secure about my physical appearance and what it will be like when i get back into the dating world? Such a difficult and painful time for me.

Thanks for replying. It's not that I a hurry to.jump.back out into the dating world but I am not feeling that great given my spouse of 22 years left in the middle of my treatment. I am glad to hear you are with someone who loves you for you.
