My original surgery was Mar 12. Expanders were placed. After 2 infections and 3 more surgeries to correct problems I had expanders removed July 30th. I now look like a "sharpee" and am depressed. I feel marked more then ever and need to return to work after drains are removed Monday. My fiance is having some kind of mid life chrisis and feels he needs to get a band together! Hello, I could use some support here, can't you forget the band for now! At least this week. I could use you just to be with me even though I maybe boring you right now. Has any one felt abandond buy there partner and felt lost? I know I should just be happy to be a stage one CA survivor but I guess I have to admit to feeling vulnerable and vein at the same time. There is where the guilt comes in. I did go look at prostetics but seemed to be more depressed after. Any one care to comment?
