Free at last!

Finally! I went in for my last post-op with the reconstructive surgeon today. I actually went down there with NO BRA! Just a halter top with a built-in padded bra. I could NEVER have done that before. Ever!

He said that I was ready to stop wearing a bra 24 hours a day, and that I only had to wear abdominal support when I was up during the day to help the skin form back since it isn't a resilent as when I was a young whipper-snapper. I don't have to wear it to sleep. YAY!

Then came the best part. He looked at the chart and said "Ok, we'll see you back here in about..." (Pregnant pause as he tries to figure, meanwhile I am expecting a month or two) "A year."

A YEAR????

I've been bouncing like a schoolgirl ever since.

I made it through this battle, and it's been a long one. Summer is coming up, and I can show off the new bod in a bathing suit without feeling like a fat cow. A really tall, wide and awkward cow, yes, but not a fat one *laugh*
