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.
