Just met with my surgeon, Happy Valentines Day to me! I have decided to have both breasts removed. The right breast seems to be fine, but the chances of it coming back are so high that I have decided to get rid of them both. I’m surprised at how easy that decision was for me to make! I’m honestly not worried about taking them off. I feel like they’re my enemies, like they’re trying to kill me! So good riddance! I feel a little more at ease after seeing the surgeon, he seems to think I’m stage II. Stage II is curable, so lets get this over with already!
I made the same decision at age 37. Such a frightening decision. You are very brave.
Thank you for that! Sometimes it’s hard to be brave, but I think that’s all we can do!
You never know just how brave and strong you can be until the time comes when you have to be. We don’t have any other choice. Stay strong.
