YES,YES !!, This not a dream but it is the day that I’ve been waiting for since July 26! Today is the last day to fill my expanders with 25 cc’s. I will now at 950. And of course I was up all night long not sleeping because I am excited and I’m very anxious. Oh and I was having charlie horses in my right breast all night long( the radiated side) so that was a ton of fun at 3am. I swear if I watch another infomercial for Wen or the Slap chop I’m gonna loose it!
I still have so many concerns about how I’ll look after the next surgery. Which is the surgery to exchange the expanders for my “magical” implants. This is how I picture the day of my surgery. The implants will arrive under guard to a rolled out pink carpet. Then the box will arrive with my implants in it. Now the box is glass,however it will be blinged out with diamonds and sparkles. Ahhh yes ! My new perky, never wear a bra, magical breasts!! Santa came early this year and left me two new breasts, no lumps of coal here. I have been a awfully good girl! 😉
So even though I will be in a ton of pain after the injections, it will be time to celebrate and put those dancing shoes on!!! Today I have again accomplished another mile stone in my cancer journey. I am proud to have gotten here with the love and support of my friends and family. And I can’t forget my wonderful PS and oncologist.
All I have to say is ,fair well you giant needles, its been fun and you did a great job. But I am happy without you going into my boobs every week!
I know its gonna feel strange not going every week to get poked, believe me I am ecstatic for this portion to be over. You see the nurses and PS so often , they feel like family. But truthfully I need a break. There had not been a day without any pain since July 26th. Whst I have happen next is letting my muscle get used to the size they are whichbtakes 6-8 weeks. Then f the swap takes place. Its gonna feel like like a vacation to me ( minus the bikini, who am I kidding I did wear one before all the BC stuff came along).
I can now saw I am a little more then half way done with the entire process all I have to say is, YAY for my boobs!!!
