Well….it would seem I am a good candidate for the DIEP flap. My consultation went well with Dr. Dumanian. My surgery date is set for April 9th. I have tons of questions but I couldn’t think of a single thing to ask when we were there…..um….it’s a good idea to write these things down….lol! Most of my questions are shallow…..like….can you contour my shape and is there a laser surgery available to make the coloring of my belly skin match my chest skin. You would think I would be happy with simply having a tummy tuck and breasts but there’s a part of me that wants to wake up with the originals…and that just isn’t going to happen.
I’m feeling a bit like I hit 36 and started falling a part. Today I was eating nuts and my tooth broke. I found a dentist who would see me….at 4:30 this afternoon. He graciously gave me a root canal and a new tooth and I didn’t get out of there till 7 pm on a Friday evening! The funny thing is….his brother was the eye doctor I saw when I had that temporary blindness back in November after chemo. I jokingly told him he and his brother have really helped me out of some tough situations! I really was grateful he stayed late for me and I’m glad I don’t have to go through the weekend with my tooth half gone!
