I decided against reconstruction

I use a prosthesis. "Should I do a reconstruction because they can do it at the same time when they take out the tumor?" I asked my husband and he said I don't care how many breasts you have, two, or three, or one. I said "Okay, fine then. I just won't do it." Because I mean, just for looks you cannot tell what's a prosthesis, right? I think another thing is the philosophy between east and west. The west society you can see all the advertisements, the girls wear swimming suits, you know. You have to have this sex appeal. The Orientals think different. Really, the function of breasts is to nurse the baby, so it didn't bother me at all. I think it might bother some American women.
