A Commentary on Breast Alignment

Nearly all the tape/bandages are off. Not bad, not bad at all. But different. Yes. the sicky breast is now the perky breast. A full 1 inch more ‘up’ than the other. Dang, I had a lift and didn’t even know to expect it. And, well this is notable. Sicky is now pointing north east! I can perhaps rely on Righty (AKA Sicky) when I am lost. It makes me giggle. Poor ole Lefty is droopy and certainly pointing to the Galapagos Islands. This could be a new movement…breast orienteering. orienteering_adventure_activities_mandurah_peel_fairbridge.jpg Photo depicts group prior to breast consult.

I cannot wait to get the remainder of the adhesive off my skin. Yuccccccky. Hospital folks said to just use Dial soap and it will sooner or later (could that be months) go away. It is just that my arm pit is sticking to my boob. Also, hospitalites said I could use finger nail polish remover to get adhesive off…but to be careful…to keep it from wounds. YIKES. You betcha.

As far as looks go. Welllllll. Sicky looks a little puckery too. I don’t mind at all. Carol, my new best friend and nurse navigator told me I can use aloe vera plant gel when I am healed sufficiently…also vitamin E. Carol also told me today, I can wear deodorant and shave once I am healed sufficiently.

In a different conversation, Lou, my skin care specialist, told me yesterday I was realllllly growing hair…great. Probably I will have facial hair or worse. Is that because I don’t have my hormone patch? Oh damn. I will have a soul patch or worse. And speaking of Lou, here is how lucky I am….she not only gave me a great Vitamin C peel, and waxed my brows and upper lip….she made me the best ever Guamanian rice. She knows I love it. I have eaten every bit of it. More or less 13,000 calories.
