One of the things that mastectomy patients have to decide upon when doing reconstruction, is whether to have nipple flap surgery,with a tatooed areola... or have 3d nipples tatooed on, like this. I decided to wait, and give myself time to heal , and decide what I wanted to do.... Continue reading

I know, I know, it's kind of a strange question! In the last 9 months, I have had several big decisions to make. Like what kind of surgery I wanted to have, did I even want reconsruction...and many more small details that just might fall under the TMI category! Now... Continue reading

This past Monday, I had my second post-op appointment. They were able to take out one of the drains...ouch! But the other one was just at the point where she felt it could go either way. So, she didn't take it out, and of course amount of "yuck" it has... Continue reading
