1 week on (not quite page 3) (warning graphic photos)

2 years ago Cancer ravaged my body. They took my breast tissue on the right from me, and they stuffed me with steroids chemo and tablets that encouraged me  to put on weight.  And then this happened… (Can I just say that I don’t quite look like Kim Kardashian yet) πŸ˜‚ 


I know I have scars and bandages. I know I’m swollen and bloated and I have a black thing covering my nipple. (I didn’t think you would want to see nipple although it’s a mighty fine one just saying)…

As battered and bruised as I am, this is my body and I’m proud of it. It’s been taken apart and put back together again and I’m so happy that I am able to look like this today, and I know I’m just going to look and feel  even better with a bit of time. 

Whether you wince at this pic, find it unattractive or whether you’re amazed by it I don’t really care, I just hope it encourages you to check your breasts.

I’m officially a DIEP sister and I don’t think I could be more proud to be one…
