December 10, 2012, the day had finally arrived. I had a single mastectomy with reconstruction. Surgery consisted of my breast surgeon Dr. Lisa Guerra removing my breast, and my plastic surgeon Dr. Tenley Lawson putting in a tissue expander. I was traumatized the weeks leading up to the surgery. I went in kicking and screaming.
Four years later I’m healthy and happy, with that fateful day fading from my memory and emotion. Almost feels like that whole experience never happened.
Today, saturday December 10, 2016, I’m getting ready for a Christmas party. Hair, makeup, and of course a low cut fitted shirt. My bosom looks fantastic. No one looking at me can tell I had a mastectomy. No one can tell I had breast cancer. I feel pretty, confident, and frankly, pretty freakin hot.
