It's been almost a year and I'm finally going to have surgery tomorrow to have the port for my Becker expander/implant removed. Also having a nipple put on. A little scared but will be glad when the port is finally removed. It has not been the most comfortable thing to live with these past 12 months. Hope the nipple reconstruction doesn't hurt too much. Dr. is creating one using a modified star technique...not a graft. Was told I'll be in surgery for about 2 hours. Keep me in your prayers. I visit the site every night to know that I'm not alone in all this. May God watch over all of us through our struggles.
