Below you will see pictures of my breasts in various stages of my mastectomy and reconstruction. The purpose of this is informational for those who want to either better understand what the experience is like for me, or for those who are going through this or considering these options. If you don't want to see, don't look!!
I'm going to try to post this from the bottom up, so that the newest picture will be on top. So to view in chronological order, go to the bottom and scroll up.

Here you can see though that I had oxygen on, and you can see that yucky orange tint to my skin... thats the disenfectant stuff they completely covered me in during surgery.
|Presurgery Markings - This was done the day before surgery and I had to take two showers between then and the surgery so after each one I had to remark all of these lines. |
