I’ll have the B cup in cancer-free, please.

Dr. Woods filled my tissue expanders yesterday for the last time.

To a size DD.

Kidding!  But I have noticed several of you looking at me recently with raised eyebrows :)

The expanders are hard, oddly shaped and overfilled.  I won’t miss them!  My permanent implants will be 325 cc’s.  Dr. Barber removed 300 grams of tissue on each side back in September.

I won’t see Dr. Woods again until my exchange surgery, which is scheduled for June 7.  No overnight stay and only two small drains (compared to the 4 larger ones I had after the mastectomy).  I should be able to drive after 48 hrs and return to normal activity after a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, I go back to Emory for my 3-month check-up next week.  I’m quite nervous about that, so I’m grateful to have my kids’ Zumba classes at the YMCA scheduled, plus a weekend full of Easter festivities.

Thank you for checking in!
