After responding to Darla I realized something.. again. *grin*
There were a LOT of things I discovered/saw/learned/experienced when I awoke from my mastectomy/reconstruction (TramFlap)... I want to make myself available and remind others periodically that I am here to tell what I know, what I've experienced thus far and so on.
My last visit with the plastic man, I said, "Hey, ye' know, I would have appreciated pics from *just* after the surgery so I could know what to expect, not just before and after everything's all pretty! *shrugs* Perhaps I am in the minority? I didn't ~realize~ that my belly button would be cut away/released from my abdominal skin and reattached afterward. No big deal, really.. but it would have been nice to have realized it in advance, ye' know? *cocks head*
Anyway... I am here. I'd love to be of help to anyone considering a Tram... Get me whilst I am still hot! (fresh out of it!) *wink*
Be well all!
