I would consider Reconstruction

Looking back on it now, I think I would probably choose to have breast reconstruction done. I still have my prosthesis. Its just an inconvenience. I'm not particularly bashful about walking around my house without a bra in a T-shirt. So I'm a little lopsided. It does make a difference in the way that your clothes fit, and I like to play tennis and wearing a prosthesis inside a bra and it jumps around and it just gets to be a little bit uncomfortable. But I think it does affect you - in that sensual, sexual aspect of yourself. That's something that I would certainly ask anyone to consider before they actually for surgery. And sometimes we don't know what we want. I didn't think I was going to my breast at all... but I really do.
