Pumped and plumped

I've had the final top-up to my implant

 Before

 After

I no longer have to wear the compression bra so the implant
can now drop and will look more natural.
 
At the moment the profile looks a little strange!

So, bring on the next round of treatment and the next two surgeries,
then I'll have matching breasts
and be ready to tease and please you all

Nipple Free!

© Rebecca Teal

Here it is…the moment I’ve been waiting for…the first sight of my scar and I am so pleased.

This is the first time my surgeon has seen it and he was very pleased, too. Some of the areola has been saved and he'll use this to make me a new nipple then a new areola will be tattooed around it. Good, huh?

This photograph was taken after I’d had another 40ml of saline injected into the implant.  The breast will settle in time and look less like a football!  Next week, I’m having the final top up…not 40ml, I don’t want to poke Mr T in the eye.

EDIT: and in case you were wondering, I will be having the other breast made larger to match!

Undressed...

Two weeks after surgery, this is how I look

 
The dressing has come off and the steristrips will come off in a couple of days. It's then I will, for the first time, see my scar and my breast without the nipple...yikes!

I won't always be this shape and size. I will have a couple more injections of saline to increase the size of the implant and when the swelling subsides, if you're not happy with the shape I can have it changed and the other breast altered to match.

I've never been a fan of fake boobs and I apologise to my followers who liked that mine were small and natural but I think I have a good reason now to indulge in a little fakery.

As my cancer is ER+, which means its growth is stimulated by estrogen, I am having my ovaries removed to help prevent any recurrence. This will mean another hospital stay and seven or so weeks recovery but should be fitted in between now and the work on my other breast. So, the schedule for getting back on cam is still mid June 2013. Until then, we shall have to have fun the best way we can...all suggestions welcome ;o)

Home with a new puppy ;o)

I'm home.
I'm very, very sore.
I feel like I've been hit by a bus but all is good.

 Here's my sexy hospital  cape...nice, huh?

And here are my super sexy (control yourselves, boys) surgical stockings.

I was a little disappointed that they're really surgical socks!

My surgeon has a set of different coloured pens. The blue line around the nipple and down and then the one under my arm is where he cut. The red outline is the implant and the little red box is the port for inflating with saline. The blue Xs are where the drains exit and I had a third one but cannot remember where it exited.

 And here I am two days after surgery.
Two of the drains have just been removed.
The remaining one will come out next week.

Another step closer to being back for you all

I just called the breast clinic. My blood results are good and all is
fine for surgery tomorrow.
So now it's actually going to happen, which is what I wanted,
I find I don't want it after all.

Waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

So fucking nervous it's unreal...

World Vegan Day

The clue’s in the title!
Today’s lunch
Today’s lunch topless!
See how good being vegan can be?

Counting blood...

© Rebecca Teal

My blood test results from Thursday show that my counts
(neutrophils, white cells, platelets and some other things with strange names)
are currently too low for next week's surgery. I'm having another test on Monday. So..

HEY, YOU, BLOOD! GET YOURSELF SORTED!

I really need this surgery as soon as possible.
