After my mastectomy last August I had the Becker expander/implant put in. This is to eliminate the second surgery for having the permanent implant. One stop shopping so to speak. Here it is nine months later and I still have the filler port still in. Anyone else with one of these? I thought my artificial breast would be a little softer than what it is. We lovingly call it my Bionic Boob. It is so firm. Is this how everyone else feels? I guess I need to hear from someone with implants to see how theirs feels. I also want to say that I took part in my first annual Mother's Day 5K Walk-Run for the Cure in Pittsburgh. What an experience. Over 3,000 survivors all in PINK. Over 39,000 participants total. I made it the 3 miles walking. A little sore the next few days but it was worth it. If you have the opportunity to do one of these...do it.
To anyone reading this who has breast cancer, consider yourself blessed as I do. We are still here talking about it and on our way to recovery. God bless you all.
