Until now I have focused primarily on my miracle journey. It has been a journal more than anything: things I'd never say out loud. Now I'm going to try to develop this blog into a breast cancer research oriented commentary. I plan to use my background to take current research and news in cancer treatment and turn it into something understandable. Please be patient, I will try to not get too nerdy! Thank you for visiting!

ITS BEEN A MONTH!!!!
Today marks the 1 month/4 week anniversary of my surgery. Even though I'm still sore & still limited I'm doing SO much better than when my boobs were trying to kill me!
The news from the doctor was good. The tissue on my right is healing - its just taking its sweet time. Right now the biggest concern is that the scab doesn't get accidentally pulled off before its ready. Since its quite large & has some edges that rub my clothes I'm probably going to try to cover it at least part of the time w/ gauze. Kind of a pain in the rump, but better than risking my implant being open to the air.
They gave me another 100cc's to get me up to 600. I got to see a real 700cc implant. It looked giant! However, apparently that's what I'm looking at having & believe it or not I'll probably only be a C-cup w/ that size. Hopefully next week's journey will be our last fill! I asked some questions & got some good answers.
