Fill ‘er up!

This morning I had an appointment with Dr Mounds.  It was time to start phase one of operation boob fill!  The twins are now at 1/3 capacity.  It was pretty cool.  He just located the spout (for lack of a better word) on the expander, whipped out a big huge syringe, poked it into my breast and kazaam – instant boob job.  It did not hurt.  In fact, I felt nothing at all.  That must be one of the perks of a double mastectomy.  My faux breasts have no sensation at all.   If I had not been watching as he jabbed that needle in to my flesh I would have not even known I had been poked.  Pretty cool, huh?

Phase two is in 2 weeks.  I wonder how many phases before I reach Dolly Parton proportions?  Probably a lot more than I am getting.

Tomorrow is chemo day.  It is not nearly as much fun now that I know there is not really cake……

  1. Awesome! That is really cool! Especially like the no pain part. Good luck tomorrow. Hopefully it won’t be as uncomfortable as the last time. Thanks for the update and have a great day!!! sp

  2. LOL.. the fills are so strange.. they may hurt more later, but mostly it was just a “feeling”.. Do your expanders have a magnet where they find where to fill? The one I had did and I could stick light metal objects to my boob.. neat trick ; )

  3. Exact ditto of what Suzanne said: Awesome! That is really cool! Especially like the no pain part. Good luck tomorrow. Hopefully it won’t be as uncomfortable as the last time. Thanks for the update and have a great day!!!
