I went to Dr. Moffett, my plastic surgeon, today. During my mastectomy he put spacers in to help expand my chest. In six months I will be able to have what they call a replacement surgery. The spacers come out and implants go in. Today I had my first “fill” to make my chest a little larger. I was terrified it was going to hurt so bad. A needle stuck in the center of my breast pumping me full of saline doesn’t sound fun. My heart was beating so fast and I kept asking the doctor if I needed to be put to sleep for this. Amazingly, I didn’t feel a thing! It was great! I am a little sore tonight and my chest feels like it is about to explode, but hey, I’m a cup size bigger!
