    Other Care (Physical Therapy): I had to rehab so I could return to work as an Occupational Therapy Assistant in Rehab. I have to be able to dead lift 50 lbs in order to return to work. Part of my job is lift, transfer and move patients during their treatment. So PT helpe me rehab so I could return to work.

    Procedure or Surgery (Breast Reconstruction (Implant)): on 11/11, I received my silicone implants: left 800cc implant, right: 750cc implant. My left boob has no nipple and one scar horizontally across the boob. The right was augmented and lifted. Scar around the aureola, down center under nipple to under boob with 3" light horizontal scar. I also have 4 scars on my left side where the drains were. 2/14 I will go under the knife again to tweak some problems since i got them: left implant falling down(i only have some cadaver tissue under implant and the right boob needs re-anchoring to reshape it to a more rounder softer shape)

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): On 4/2012 I had the first stage of my reconstruction started with the tissue exlander surgery. Every two weeks the doc would inject me with 90-120cc of saline to stretch the skin. Once the desired size is achieved, then you have another surgery take out tissue expander and replace it with the two implants (one for each side) so they would match.
