Have any of you had difficulty realizing your breasts no longer physically exist? I am not experiencing phantom breast pain. I still have pain in my upper chest and neck, but I have absolutely no feeling where my breasts were. In fact I can put an ice cold can on the incisions and I don't feel it. It seems that since I have no feeling there, it makes it more difficult for me to realize that they aren't there. Sometimes I have to actually look at and feel the incision area. I also find that when talking with my husband I don't know what to call the area. (chest or former breasts) Has anyone else experienced this? I know it is petty, but I just wondered.
Please pray for me that I am able to have the drains on the left side removed in the morning. It will be 3 weeks!
Thank you for your continued inspiration! You are all in my prayers. May you have a blessed day!
