I have a couple dates....

with my plastic surgeon that is! lol

Tomorrow I go for my second areola tattooing session. Hopefully that will be all that needs done with those for a while. Cross your fingers!

December 20th, I am having the scar on my back (where they took skin and muscle for my reconstruction) revised. When I had complications and the incision broke open my plastic surgeon had to do stitches on the outside. That makes the scar not look as pretty, so she is going to work on that. Surgery should be a breeze. Can't even believe I am going to say this, but after that I think my reconstruction will be DONE!!!! What a long road it has been!

Oh and I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned it on here, but my sister, Erika and I always seem to have doctor's appointments and surgeries on the same day. Well Dec. 20th is no different. She has an appointment with an OB/GYN for a 10 week pregnancy appointment!!!!!!! That's right, my baby sister is having a baby!!!!!! I am so happy for her!


  1. That's great!
    I met for the first time with my plastic surgeon the other day. He gave me a list of options for my reconstruction and I've been left with having to make a big decision. Getting an implant is out of the question due to radiation. I hope you don't mind me asking, but what was the choices you had and why did you choose your back? Are you happy with the shape?
    Congrats to your sister. I hope everything goes smoothly for her too.

  2. Monica, I was very limited in my options. I couldn't have just straight implants due to radiation. If I had the skin and fat taken from my stomach I could've been maybe an A cup, so I went with my only other flaps with silicone implants. It wasn't what I wanted, but I'm very happy with my results. If I ever get organized, I can send you pictures. It is such a hard decision to make. Good luck to you!
