Unspoken

It’s the unspoken question I keep hearing as I endure surgery after breast reconstruction surgery: “Why are you putting yourself and your family through this? It’s not like breasts are essential to your life?”

It’s a good question and my answer is that plenty of women choose not to have breast reconstruction, but as for me, facing the possibility of life with no breasts, or, worse, one breast, I can say that I didn’t go through everything I went through to spend the rest of my life feeling like a part of me was missing.
