It's been a rather large week for me. As well as losing my Grandad, I also had my latest, and hopefully final breast surgery.
This one was a simple day procedure, that has still resulted in a large amount of swelling and discomfort and an inability to shower properly for a week. You should see my hair.
The benefit will hopefully be that I will now have two even, level, similar looking breasts. Although the scarring on the outside remains, the amount of scar tissue within the breast has been reduced which has to improve the appearance and comfort factors.
It's an odd sensation to feel as though a part of your body does not actually belong to you. Instead, an odd sort of numbness takes its place.
The final task once my scar heals will be nipple tattoos. Can you even imagine how much fun that might be. Thank goodness for the numbness.
And then, they will be complete and as perfect as they can be. It will have all been worth and the circle will be complete.
- I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.
