    I look like Frankenstein's bride with all the scars I have. I have no belly button, no nipple on left breast that was taken and it looks like a round blob of meat with scars on it. Both breasts? are different sized cups. The surgeon made an off the wall comment of ,give it time,it will grow to match the other!??!!!

    Pain

    Side Effects

    Since I had government provided insurance, I was not allowed to have follow up care or reconstructive surgery. I was told that at my AGE, I shouldnt be worried about that. The physical and mental side effects have come XXX close to taking my life from me.
