I love, love, love Mr G - so friendly, so understanding, so supportive, so clear, so concerned about what I want.
We talked about all my options - mastectomy then reconstruction using impants and a strattice mesh to hold them in place and reconstruction using tissue from my back or stomach. I got to see and hold examples of implants and see lots of pictures of the various ops, as well as nipple reconstruction.
SO SO much to think about and get my head around, I know I want to the surgery its just what type of recon I go for. It all feels very real now, I'm strangely excited. Its very empowering to really grab hold of the reins with this and make decisions for my body before it's taken out of my hands.
Mr G wont see me now for 3 months, he insists I go away and read the research, watch the dvd's and think long and hard about it.
Crikey, really happening then isn't it?!?!?
