I had a mastectomy right side on the 12 of Dec
with tissue expanders. At this point I am not sure if I will continue with the reconstruction. It was one month from diagnosis to surgery. Everything went so fast I kinda was talked into the expanders. They told me I would have deep depression issues later if I didnt being that I am only 44. I have a lot of things to work through. Now they want to put me on anti depressents. I had taking anything that alters me. I was not one of the lucky ones that had an easy recovery it has been horrible. I got off my pain meds and went through withdrawals. It was so bad. Now everything makes me sad and all I can think about the what ifs. I should be celebrating and happy because they got everything
I am cancer free. But I am so depressed. Is anyone of anti depressents and if so what do you think about them, and also is anyone wearing a prosthetic . I would appreciate any response I am scheduled to meet with my plastics on the 10th which is next week and I need to give him an answer. I think my body is rejecting this expander because its still very painful.
