I know I am lucky, for I have survived one year after diagnosis, gotten thru reconstruction, after expanders, on both sides. Well, they have settled, gravity has pulled them down. I am thin, was an A cup, the surgeon had to remove alot of tissue, and there is next to nothing that remains. It is very bony. I am not pleased with the appearance. I am now a small B, but feel very vulnerable with little coverage left on my upper chest. The area around my sternum is bare bones, no padding at all, just a big space between the implants. During the last surgery, Dr injected some fat stem cells, it helped some. At this point, I am not sure what to do. It is especially sensitive for me because I am still single and want to be looking good. Part of me wants to just skip my final surgery or at least put it off for a while because I am so tired of this, and then part of me wants to go back in and get them to be more attractive. I miss my confidence!! Before, even tho they were XS, they were well contoured with my body. Anyone have this problem post expanders?? In my effort not to make them too big, I feel I have made them too small....
