Today is my reconstruction surgery. Happy birthday to my new twins!


Well today is the day that I am having the c-section for my twins! (don’t know if they are boys are girls yet !) Really I’m getting my brand new perky magical new breasts! Remember those magical breasts that I talked about many, many blogs ago? These are the ones that would never need a bra and would look fantastic in everything that I wore? Yes those breasts!! Oh and let’s not forget these the most important thing is they are cancer free!



A little nail art to welcome the twins!

I am entering into the surgery with anxiety, some fear, but especially excitement to see how I’m going to look after all it’s over. Its time to close this chapter in “Heather’s Breast Cancer Shenanigans and Surprises”. πŸ™‚




About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!

  2. Yippie!!!! I will be thinking about you and your battle won!!! So proud of you and such great news. Thanks for sharing!!!! I have my reconstruction surgery (expander exchange) may 13th. Is that your surgery?? I can’t wait. These expanders have been in me for a year and 5 days (as of the day I get the surgery). So ready to get them out too!!! Congrats!!!!! πŸ™‚

      • I’m pretty banged up however not nearly as bad as the mastectomy.It hurts when I get up from laying down, like the stitches are gonna open. My right side hurts more then the left. I had a capsule form around the expander so my PS had to break it up. But that side is the one I have issues with because of the radiation. And I’m pretty tired but I think that’s a given with every surgery. Tuesday is my follow up so I will see what next for me in this reconstruction process.

      • You did great, I couldn’t write on my nails if I tried…my left hand totally has a mind of its own!
        As for ‘foobs’ I’d seen it mentioned a few places, and like you, I thought it was perfect, so adopted it. πŸ™‚

  3. Thinking about you, lady! Hoping everything went okay and you are happy with the new girls!
    Wishing you a quick and easy recovery!! Xo
