Another fill behind me. We took it back down a notch from 75 and added 50ccs to each expander, for a total of 350ccs/side. I’m not sure that you can see much of the difference in the photo, whic is at the bottom of this post.
I must say that I feel better after this fill than I did after the previous three. Typically I wake up on Saturday and it takes me a while to get going. This morning I didn’t feel much pain at all – no ibuprofen needed. I went food shopping and cleaned the whole house. I hope I don’t regret this tomorrow! Fingers crossed that this continues for the next four fills.
To celebrate my over-the-hump expansion (four down, four to go), I present to you: t-rex. In a previous post (see: Shower time) I joked that I had t-rex arms because of my limited range of motion right after the mastectomy. I could barely scratch my head (or butt) for a few days. I got this shirt shortly after. Enjoy!
Literally L’ing OL!
That is amazing … They are really looking good.. Learning how this surgery works has been really amazing .. Thank you so much for sharing.. Helen
Best. Boobie. Pics. Ever.
Seriously, congratulations on making it half-way to the end of your fills, and for winning ” most creative mastectomy photo ever” in my book! xo
Your expanders look AMAZING! I did a tribute to your blog recently chronicling the look after each of my surgeries. I, however, am not as brave as you so I did it my own way as you will see http://myeyesareuphere.wordpress.com/2013/05/02/reconstruction-with-emoticons/
Thanks, Elizabeth! I love the smilies!!!
