Misha It has got to be frustrating to know you need more treatment than originally thought but I pray you tolerate it well. Also glad to hear you are feeling well enough to go back to work!
I went back to work last week and honestly felt like I could have gone the week before. However, we long ago committed to take care of our granddaughter while parents were in Florida last week, so the idea of taking care of a toddler by myself (DH had to go out of town) was just too much. She went to daycare during the day and was so great about understanding that I couldn't lift her.
Ever since surgery I felt I was battling anesthesia brain since I couldn't seem to remember the simplest things. Being back to work has helped. I guess I just need to exercise my brain?!?
I will be going in for genetic testing here soon. Mixed feelings on that. Am I supposed to hope they find something that explains all the breast cancer in my family? I am so sad for those in my family that did not beat this dreaded disease! Out of the 8, I and another cousin are the only survivors. I literally attended the funeral of one cousin who lost her breast cancer battle 3 days before my surgery. I am sure witnessing her final days so recently mpacted my BMX decision, but I don't regret it at all. Hopefully with all the advances there will be no more losses.
I came across this which shows a good example of fat grafting. Thought I would share.
Wow... did I get long winded or what!
