Let’s look at today’s numbers:
My WBC count today: 2.485
Number of cc’s added to my right expander today: 40
Number of cc’s added to my left expander today: 70.
Yes; I am lopsided yet again. Sigh. I know I have to be patient if I want good cosmetic results, but this just sucks! No hair, uneven boobs, scars, weight gain – just slap my ass and call me deformed. I’ll most likely be lopsided for the next couple of months as my plastic surgeon works to make my left side, where I had to have a lot more skin removed, equal to my right side. More surgery will also be needed to accomplish symmetry, so it could be Thanksgiving before everything is over. I’m sure looking forward to September 1st, my last infusion, but I was reminded today that even after that date things aren’t quite over. On the bright side, the surgeries will be a lot easier than the chemo, and hopefully my hair will be growing at that point!
As I told my surgeon, I’ll just have to have a party in November celebrating turkey, stuffing, and new boobs.
