I do not see any kind of rays or feel anything whatsoever until after the fact. I thought I was going to be a lucky one because it was going pretty well until a couple weeks ago when my skin starting getting burnt from the radiation. The burns look like an extremely bad sunburn. It's beet red on the right side of my chest & under my armpit and almost up to my neck as well as some irritation on my back. It hurts so bad in some spots and sometimes feels like my skin is going to rip when I move certain ways, it feels so tight. It's very, very uncomfortable to say the least but I made it and am almost done forever! I'm still not sure yet about the reconstructive surgery, but I can't even get it done until I heal from everything for six months. It's such a major surgery so I am just not sure if I want to get it done. I am doing ok not having any breasts, it isn't bothering me as much as I thought it would so we'll see.
I'm overwhelmed to say the least. It has been such a long journey but I couldn't have made it without such a wonderful support system. I am so very blessed to have you all. I couldn't have asked for a better fan club! :)
I want to thank you all so very much for your love, prayers, support, gifts, time and especially for giving me hope. xoxoxo
