Breast Cancer – Bilateral Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction

I was hoping for a trip to Cancun to celebrate turning 40. Instead, I took a trip to Iowa Methodist Hospital to have my breasts removed.I also underwent reconstruction, which put me in some serious discomfort (and sometimes serious pain) for several months. But thankfully, today I am cancer free and learning to live with my new fake breasts. 🙂 It’s a crazy weird experience.

Here are a few links you might find helpful as you walk through mastectomies and reconstruction.
