    I've also cut off all of my hair, instead of trying to hold on to the length, because it was stressing me out, my hair was falling out in bunches. I think I look sexy without my hair. That's the positive side of being bald.

      I felt real sad at first too, especially cause I am only 44 and wanted another baby. But, the tumor was an uninvited "hitchhiker." And, the tumor had to go as did everything else. But, it was for the best. They were poison and had to go. Now, I envision perfect health in there. At first I physically felt hollow and could swear things sloshed around in there. But, 3 months later that feeling was gone. The bloating will last longer and be there lots with chemo too, but it won't last forever. Things will get better. Hang in there!

      Jackie, I did not feel loss based on body parts but more at the change in my life. Hope you find someone who will listen and walk with you through the grieving and all the other things that come with the diagnosis.
      Hugs and prayers going your way.

      I never gave it much thought. I've never defined myself by my body parts because they don't make me who I am. The person I am is based on the compassion in my heart, my soul, and my spirit. When I had my hysterectomy it was to get rid of something that had a horrible disease. Try to focus on the fact that you are here and you have a lot of life to live. Take care.
