THE ONE YEAR MARK OF MY BILATERAL MASTECTOMY

A3
It's hard to believe that I had my bilateral mastectomy one year ago this week.  Everyone reacts differently to this emotionally charged major surgery.  Please remember that there is no right or wrong way to feel at any point in your journey through breast cancer.  Some women celebrate this day as evidenced by the survivor who danced in the operating room just prior to her mastectomy this week.  On the flip side, I've heard of women holding a memorial for their breasts post surgery.  Others are terrified of the surgery and the unknowns of recovery.  Many are still in shock from the diagnosis and progress through their surgery with little or no emotion at all. 
  
If you are facing surgery for breast cancer in your near future, please know that you are not alone.  Look around this website or visit us on Facebook where you can share your concerns with breast cancer survivors throughout the world.  
 
Thanks for reading!
