Soooo, I'm getting ready for a big wedding this afternoon and it is my first dressy occasion since my double mastectomy. (6 months ago) One year prior I had a colostomy bag (still do) as part of my treatment for anal cancer. I will be seeing a lot of people who I have not seen since before my new body! I know the day is about the bride, but I also know that people who know what I've been through can not help but look at me. I don't want that to sound vain, but I am feeling really anxious. I have barely had anything to eat since lunch yesterday in an attempt to limit output via colostomy, that I am used to, but still need to wear a dress that fits loosly. I never had reconstruction on my breasts and am small framed anyhow so usually ok with just a lightly padded bra, but today just feel nervous!!! At least my nails are real, and look amazing! Wish me luck!
