The support shown to me for my earlier post has been overwhelming.
I cannot thank you all enough. I feed on positivity………… it keeps me going.
We are back home and now wait to hear when I shall need to attend my ‘pre-op’ assessment where I will be given a ‘softy’ to put in my bra to balance me out and complete the necessary paperwork.
We have decided to go just for the surgery and not reconstruction. It would be different perhaps if I were in my twenties or thirties, go for topless holidays, or wear strappy dresses or bikinis. I’m 63, not going to have a family or pose for Vogue, and I want it done, asap.
It’s not as if I have that much ‘up top’ anyway, but apart from further delay, there are other things to consider, one being if I had reconstruction, they would use the tissue from my belly……. I have plenty to spare…… but should I be facing a similar situation in the future, apparently they could not do it again. On top of that, it’s a longer operation (7½ hours compared to one and a half) and the idea of having two or more areas to worry about for the healing process does not appeal.
Of course I can always change my mind, but cosmetics are not important to me.
The Di people know does not come in a B cup. The wrapping is not what makes the person, and surgery will not make me anything less.
I’m still annoyed (and a little afraid of what happens next to be honest) but I will not let it beat me. The important thing is that I am not alone, and for that I am eternally grateful.
