A few "new" things happened today. I started loosing some hair. 😔 I was hopeful that since I'd made it a month with no loss that maybe I wouldn't loss it! BUT today it seems to be coming out bit by bit. No big chunks but lots of strands😏 we will see what happens. Second I have not actually seen my incisions from my mastectomy yet. Can you believe my steri-strips and tape have stayed on this whole time! So I decided after my shower to gently peel it all off and have a look for the first time. I'm really healing nicely. The incisions are long but have healed well. It was strange to not see nipples where nipples have been for 39 years but it wasn't as disheartening as I feared it might be. It all looks pretty good! I saw the plastic surgeon last week and we talked about reconstruction a little. He said since I'm doing so well with chemo/and if I continue to do well with it that he would consider doing surgery as soon as two months after I finish chemo! So I may be able to have final reconstruction sooner than I was originally thinking! But I'll definitely wait until the fall so I don't have to miss any lake time this summer! 😎 Which is another interesting problem. The tissue expanders are rock hard, they seriously have no give at all, so a bathing suit if quite odd to wear. We took a quick trip to TN this weekend to a house that had a hot tub so I was forced to put on a bathing suit. I will definitely have to go shopping for something that fits these things! Luckily someone on a Breast Cancer FB site I follow happen to have the same problem and asked for advice. Many ladies recommended Lands End because they have a mastectomy line of bathing suits! Who knew! So I'll be taking a look at those, hopefully I find something that works!
All and all I'm doing really well! Thank you all for your continued prayers! Lots of Love-Sarah
