No Soup For You!
Well, not exactly soup. I wasn't denied soup by the Soup Nazi, but I was temporarily denied reconstruction from the Boob Nazi.

Yesterday was supposed to be the beginning of puberty -- the first expansion of the tissue expanders inserted during surgery. No such luck. The doctor didn't like the way the incision from the catheter removal (back in mid-November) was healing. It seems the disolvable stitches weren't disolving and the stitches were just aggravating the wound. He wanted to make sure there was no sign of infection anywhere in the area that would be aggravated by the procedure. He removed the stitches and now it's a topical antibiotic ointment twice a day until January 19th. In reality, that is just 8 days away. I guess puberty can wait . . . . . sigh.

P.S. I appreciate that the doctor is so conservative. I'm sure it will be worth it in the end. And really, I don't often call him names. I think he is a great doctor and very thorough.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
