My life has been…Well it’s been something. Between the necrosis from a badly done boob job, the subsequent dehescience after implant removal, months on the V.A.C. wound closure machine, spending more months feeling and being a mangled, sub-human thing, making plans to kill myself, not knowing if I would even be able to have breast reconstruction and finally, the fear of necrosis before and during healing from the latissimus flap breast reconstruction. It’s been a long road and now it is starting to come to an end. In mid-August I’ll have medical tattooing and then it will all be over.
Mentally and emotionally getting the reconstruction, both mound and nipple, went a very long way towards helping me to heal. That’s not to say that I’m not still angry. I have days…much fewer now…when I still wish very bad things on the surgeon who did the first surgery. I still do not know for certain how much of it was his fault. But I do know there is plenty of blame there in the way he handled things.
Since there really isn’t much for me to write about in my own personal journey, and because so few of you have offered to come forward with your own stores, I will be slowly winding down on posting. As you can see, it has been a while since I posted. That’s simply because there are no new developments to report and nothing new in the future aside from the tattooing.
I will have a video of the tattooing and I’ll also have commentary on that healing process.
I will leave the site up for the rest of my life. I may even leave a small stipend in my will to keep Boobcast going after I am gone. This is, of course, a very, VERY long time from now. Even though I’m nearing the end of this particular journey, I still feel that Boobcast is an extremely valuable resource for anyone dealing with necrosis or having breast or nipple reconstruction of any type.
I will still be available to answer questions and I encourage you all to contact me if you ever need a friendly ear or if you have questions you’re afraid to ask someone else. I’m always available for that and always will be. So don’t worry about that.
Take care, dear readers and please remember that i am always here to help.
