Last Thursday I had a wide local excision and SNB of my tumour - which was located at the very top of my breast, where it meets the chest. I was fine with losing some overall volume assuming that I could wear a pad if needed. But now that the swelling has gone down a bit I can see a bit of a dent or divot mark.
My surgeon is considered one of the top oncoplastic surgeons in the country, and she thinks the results are excellent, given that repositioning tissue at the top of the cleavage is very difficult. And I should be thrilled because I got to keep my breast and my nodes were clear.
Still, I am feeling sorry for myself that everything is so visible and will be a permanent reminder, especially since I'm single. Destined for high-neck tops forever?
thanks for listening to me whine. 😉
