On January 14th I was diagnosed with breast cancer. On march 14th I had a bilateral mastectomy and several lymph nodes removed. Then on April 15th I had another surgery to remove infected tissue and skin. Currently I have expanders in and I will begin the reconstruction part on April 30th. I thought the new breast would make me feel better but I don't believe they will. My once scar free body has three huge scars on each side from the JP drains along with my scar from one armpit to the other, along with a huge indention between my chest and armpit. I currently have some sort of nerve damage going on. Is that normal and will I regain the lost feeling in my chest, side and arm?.
