Two years ago today I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
Since then I have:
Gone to too many doctors appointments to count,
Had tons of tests, scans, and blood work,
Shed many tears,
Lost my hair and grew it back causing me to endure every bad hairstyle in between,
Let a surgeon cut off both of my breasts and take all the lymph nodes he could get his hands on out of my left armpit,
Remained breastless for 11 months, which in turn caused all my clothes to not hang right,
Finished 17 rounds of chemo,
Suffered a GI bleed, which made it official...my doctors have now poked or proded every nook and cranny of my body,
Was told I had non-invasive cervical cancer,
Agreed to have a plastic surgeon take my back muscle and skin to create a couple Frankenboobs,
Suffered many weeks with drains,
Endured post-op complications,
Had saline added to my Frankenboobs 7 times,
And I still have more to do, but....
Happy Cancerversary to me!
