    Loss (Body part/function): My breasts are gone and in the reconstruction process. Implants will happen mid-May. Getting used to expanders - you don't, just tolerate them and pray the next stage will feel more natural. Weird loosing the feeling in the front half of your breast and I think the worst is loosing you nipples. Was talked out of nipple sparing because the chances of them surviving because of lack of blood flood was very small - wishing now I had taken the chance. Debating now if I want to nipple reconstruction/tattooing done.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): Got off the pain meds after 3 days - couple of Tylenol worked. Surgery was 6DEC18. Emotional is harder than physical for me.
