Say yes to plastic parts....

Posted on: November 15, 2008 10:57 am
 

I am whole again.  It is amazing how much better I feel to be a woman in shape in addition to mind and soul.  I can't describe it.  I thought I might feel shallow for doing it.  Or strange for whatever reason.  So many thoughts go through your mind when the doctor tells you you have cancer.  You suffer through so much pain, mental and physical.  You want to pull back from your friends and hide.  I have lost weight, my hair, and my outward beauty.  But now I am healthy, cancer free, back to my playing weight, and I have had my final surgery (I hope).  I am happier than I have ever been in my life.  I have met my soul mate in this terrible process and we plan on marrying in the spring.

For all the kind words on this board I must again say thank you.  For the negatives words - I forgive you, for what its worth.

For those just dying to ask....  small C.  Looks right with my height and the restructure of my breast.

For those of you who may be going through something like I went through, or know someone, take comfort that it will pass and you can get better.  Much better.

I'm sorry that you or anyone has to go through such a horrible experience... In dealing with some cancer patients, it seems that the majority of them speak of beating the mental aspect of the disease first and then allowing the treatments to do their job... It seems that the world of medicine is getting closer and closer to winning the battle against breast cancer, we can only hope for further research and funding...

It appears that anything lost in this process, you were prepared to and dealt with appropriately... I don't know anyone that wouldn't trade some hair and weight for a renewal on life... Your attitude is astonishing, that alone speaks volumes of your inner and outward beauty...

"Amanda"... Another survivor... Congratulations... !!!

AmVes,

I'm happy that you feel "complete" again.  You're not shallow.  I can't imagine what you've gone through.

Be well.

Congrats!!!! Not only in being healthy and cancer free but in finding your soul mate.  You are an inspiration and give hope to those that also struggle with illness of any type.  Congrats once again, stay strong, and let your inner beauty keep you standing, that is what matters.

As I scan through the Monday morning threads, it is always good to see a story of personal triumph.  It does kind of brighten the day before we dive into failing economies, govt.  bailouts, and political bickering.  Good for you.  Good for taking on a tough situation, beating it, and maybe just coming away with more than you went into it with.  Modern medical science is truly great.  I know there are many out there that think all in the medical science field are somehow evil crooks, but the reality is people every day are living lives that would have been lost thanks to medical science and pharmaceuticals companies.  And yes, cosmetic surgery, when not  abused or perverted, is a wonderful thing.  It can give to people the mental recovery that they otherwise may never have achieved.  So again, good for you and best luck with your Spring plans, even if you do have bad taste in teams .

AV,

glad to hear all things worked well for you. there is a silver lining and I think many prayers for you were answered. I am glad you found the soul mete you so richly deserved and now do not have to hear all of the garbage of these boards that chase anyone with a skirt. KInd of hope they mistake a kilt for a skirt some day, would be poetic justice. Hope your life goes as well as it seems to be at this time.

regards
