The time is drawing near. A time so long and far into the future I could not imagine it actually getting here. But on Friday I head to the plastic surgeon to discuss my reconstructive surgery. Before my cancer, I was a D-cup. I have lived most of my life with big breasts and they had become a part of my identity whether I wanted them to or not. Living without after my cup had runneth over has been an eye opening experience in many ways-both positive and negative. For a time I felt very inadequate and extremely self concious. Natural to feel this way after so drastic a change to my health, physical and mental. But the docs have giving me the go ahead to begin the process of reconstruction. I am so excited to writing a late if not final chapter in the book of my cancer and look forward to getting on with normalcy.
But I have a problem, I am not sure what size I want to be for the rest of my life. I am 37 years old, 5'9" and 122 lbs today. I am tall, athletic and muscular in build. I am thinking of something smaller. Perhaps a full B or smaller C cup.
But everytime I decide, I change my mind again. So I need some help guys and gals. Opinions please. Pros and cons. Go big or small? Or perhaps follow Baby Bear's advice and find something that is just right.
F.O.A.D. - thank you.
