Bride of Frankenstein.......

Well this is probably the most dreaded moment for all women that have mastectomies.  The moment the bandages come off and you are faced with the reality of what's left (or should I said, what's not left, lol) 

I didn't crumble to the floor in hysterics, but I have to admit it kind of takes your breath away.  The purple ink markings and the drains hanging out of my chest, like tentacles of an octopus, don't help the look either.  I will be shopping on-line for some falsies that's for sure.  No really, after the initial shock, it isn't that bad. 

I'm having a great day.  Took a shower which made me feel so much better.  I am having little, to no pain, and getting around great.  Whoo Hooo!!!!  Love to all.


  1. Sounds like you adjusting and I am happy you are facing reality. I have a friend (actually 2) friends. Carol is a sweetheart and is strong like you. On top of that she has 2 hearing aids.I admire her strength. You are reminding me of her. Keep it up Connie, as you are my hero too.

  2. Wow Connie...You are doing so incredibly well. 2 days Post op..All I can say is Praise God!
    He is so Faithful. And He will measure out exactly what you need for each day...sounds like today was courage,and He saw you through.
