Next step after this was to wait a few more months for the new tissue to settle and give time for the scars to fade . . . 6 months, then back to see the doc to talk about nipples!
I had my last appointment with my radiation oncologist. She was very happy to see how the reconstruction had progressed and that the radiation had not done damage to my right side. One less doctor to see on a regular basis! And to celebrate that . . . I'm off to Los Angeles to spend some time with my friend Ev!

At the wrap party for "The Chicago 8" in the Hollywood Hills
Back to Boston to see my surgeon. Pretty happy with the results thus far, but still weighing the nipple options. After much thought and talking it over I decide to go through with the surgery. Afterall, it would be like having a sundae without the cherry on top . . . that's no good . . . so June it is. A few days after that, I left for the Bahamas for a little fun on the island with a great friend! Excited to get away and not think about surgery, cancer, stress . . . ANYTHING!
