Personal Stories – One Lump or Two by Elizabeth

This is what makes me so mad. I have no idea if my treatment was necessary or if I will go through the rest of my life maimed for nothing. I turn 50 this year and can expect to live about as much longer. My “breasts” are really abdominal tissue that has been moved. I have no feeling there at all. In eight short years, I will have been married as long without functioning breasts as I was with. I wish I had been offered the chance to just be monitored. As it is, I have suffered a HUGE loss in quality of life, perhaps for no reason.”
