I saw my plastic surgeon this week. We're both on the same page as to what needs to be done. She says that there will probably be no drains! That alone has gotten me excited for the surgery. Now I'm just waiting for a call to see when they can get me in. Late August or early September.

Done for now

About a week into January they stopped my radiation 2 session short of the 30 Rads total. I was burning too bad. I healed fairly quickly though. The breast cancer team kept an eye on me and I kept up with treating my burns several times a day. 

Today I'm all healed and can wear a regular bra. I'm still lopsided, but reconstruction surgery this fall should take care of that.

My treatment took a total of a little over 10 months. I learned alot about myself and my family and friends during that time. All of it was positive. I have a wonderful family and work for an amazing company. A big shout out to everyone who supported me on my journey. It has meant the world to me!
