Had nipple recon surgery this past Tuesday. They took the skin from my abdomen and right now feeling pretty good. Just extremely sore. Will see the Doc on Monday to reveal my new nipples. Right now they have put some very odd looking bandages on the "nipple" area and am feeling some sharp pains in my breasts. If anyone out there has had this surgery, I would appreciate any information you can give me on your recovery...pain, length of recovery and so on. You know how it is...you ask the docs and nurses and they give you pretty standard answers. I would like to hear it from someone who has been there!
