Before I had the mastectomy I really started to think about it a lot. It was a very stressful time. One night I even googled images of mastectomies and it scared the crap out of me. I remember closing my eyes and then looking at the images and wanting to look away but then always coming back to it. Like a car accident. Why on earth was I doing this? Then I would look again. Then it really hit me that soon I was going to be like one of those images. I remember putting my head down on the desk and sobbing. It was really scary to try to think about how I was going to look afterwards. What scared me more was how it was going to make me feel. I didn’t know what to expect.

Now that I was on the other side of the mastectomy, I was adjusting to the new reality and still not too sure how I felt about it. Several months had passed but each day brought mixed feelings and physical challenges. However, I was determined to focus on the positive. The cancer was gone.Share on Reddit!!!
