Breast Cancer Update

I am in the middle of reconstruction. The expanders are in and I am going in about every 8-10 days and having injections of saline put in to enlarge the breast cavity. I have another surgery planned May 12 to put in the implants. Once the implants are in place, there could be additional surgery needed if the breasts are not symmetrical, or if they are lumpy. The injection days, Hans and Franz Days is what I call them, are days that I am sore, and I usually don't sleep well that night, but usually within 24 hours I am relatively pain free and can easily go about my life.

My last injection could be Monday! Dr. Howard will decide then if I need more injections. I am hoping I will be done but I don't really feel like I am back to my size before the mastectomies.
