Each scar is a badge of honor for me, I have one on each breast and under one arm. I had a bilateral mastectomy 6/11 with lymph nodes removed. I still have some numbness along the scars but it is getting a little better. I laugh each time I shave my right armpit as it is a challenge with the indent from lymph node surgery. I also had recon done on both breasts and clothed I feel pretty normal but naked it's still a struggle most days. You have found a great bunch of ladies here. Try posting on the main board it gets more action. Remember this too shall pass.
