When did you complete treatment?I have no way of knowing what my mood will be like when I am through with reconstruction. I am generally a positive person, and glad to be alive, with a great support network,almost 5 weeks post bilateral mastectomy with expanders, still have drains, and pain which is not always adequately treated. I have an excellent prognosis. I already have some angry days. What I do not have is days where I feel my "normal."I ran 5 miles the day before a 7 hour surgery. I am angry that working in the garden for a few hours yesterday, which is usually a meditative experience for me, made my pain level bad enough to take one of 2 remaining percocet. I am angry that I had cancer in the first place, especially when I had no lifestyle risks. I think it is uncomfortable for us to feel angry sometimes, maybe because it isn't pretty?
