Happy Friday Breasties! 💋🍩🙈💕 We made it to the weekend! This week was a hard one if I look at the current circumstances in my life... but at the same time, this week has been one of great freedom and joy! Simply because THIS week I decided to press into the things I know to be TRUE, to be still and remember what I believe and stand for, and write down what’s important to me and what I want out of my life. Pulling my focus AWAY from the current hurts-struggles (easier said than done) and focusing on what I’m grateful for lead me to have a GREAT week emotionally. I felt more centered, and more like MYSELF than I have in months 💕😭 (Can we say hallelujah?!) Its ultimately up to ME to steward my happiness. No one else can do that for me... So this week, I took ownership of that. Circumstances don’t have to determine your attitude. Surround yourself with the people you love this weekend, treat yourself, and take a minute to just BREATHE and remember what you’re grateful for 💕
.
P.S This is my face when I think about how this time next Friday I’ll be on my way to the @the_breasties retreat! EEEK! Will I see you there?! .

Jaw Clenched. Tired Eyes. Shaking hands. "I'm going to have to have the doctor come in." No words you want to hear. 
Everything is fine, no cancer. I found a lump 8 weeks ago. I am developing Capsular Contracture. Capsular Contracture develops when internal scar tissue forms a tight or constricting capsule around a breast implant, contracting it until it becomes misshapen and hard. My body is attacking the foreign object. The object I chose to have in place of my 85% chance of cancer breast tissue.

This week has been well hard. I am my own worst enemy. I over think. I try to make sure i am giving everything 100 per cent to every little thing i have going on, then realise i left myself behind.
So today i thought just stop. take a breath. make a change. 
So here it is (literally) eating some food that actually makes me feel good. It is something small but i know it is just for me and a step in the right direction. .............................. #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthylunch #justforme #nakedburger #sweetpotato #breastcancergene #mutation #hope #iwillfight #iwillsurvive #mutant #gettingstrong #doingitformyfamily

Post Op Day 7
We drove into #houston this evening for my 1st post op appointment tomorrow morning and we are staying in the cutest apartment EVER thanks to #airbnb. These last couple of days have been extra challenging. There has been A LOT of nausea and vomiting. Since I stopped the antibiotics the vomiting has subsided, but the nausea remains. I’ve been using  #queaseease to help with that (so far it’s working great). Even though I didn’t feel like doing the 5hour drive to see the doctor, when we arrived I got really excited because i realized that I get to sleep with my hubby again... since I have to sleep in an upright position (the doctor recommended a #lazyboy recliner) I have been sleeping alone for the last week. Well, there’s no recliner here so @deadbeet003 has propped me up with tons of pillows so I can sleep in the bed with him (at home he sleeps in the couch next to me). It’s amazing how much I miss sleeping in his arms (I’m a cuddler and he is the sweetest and does so much for me that yeah, he cuddles 😉). Sometimes when you are feeling at your lowest and nothing seems to make you feel better, having the love of your life hold you in his arms can make all the difference. I love you NickyG, more than you’ll ever know!! #previvor #previvorjourney #previvormom #proactive #mysisterismyhero #cancersucks #prophylactichysterectomy #prophylacticbilateralmastectomy #texasbornandraised #blessed #myhusbandrocks #ilovenick #loveofmylife❤️ #brca1 #brcapositive #brca1positive #breastiebestie

Today was not a good day... the antibiotics have been making me very sick and it is getting progressively worse. Nick emailed my surgeon to ask if there was a way to switch antibiotics, luckily he responded almost immediately and said to stop all pain meds and antibiotics. The pain has really been controlled so I’m not worried about stopping them, but I hope stopping the antibiotics doesn’t cause any problems. In the name of Jesus, I am stopping all the medications and I WILL be ok. #previvor #cancersucks #brca1 #brcapositive #prophylactichysterectomy #prophylacticdoublemastectomy #myhusbandrocks #iampink #blessed #mysisterismyhero #breastiebestie #tomorrowwillbebetter #betterdaysahead

Day 5 post op... today everything is better. Last night I slept most of the night for the first time since surgery. I only woke up twice. Once because clindamycin gives you a horrible medicine taste in your mouth... the taste was so bad that it woke me up; I rinsed my mouth and brushed my teeth. It felt better. The second time, it was the pain on my chest that woke me up. I was due for pain medication so I took  it and went right to sleep. It was a good night. This morning I was able to do my sponge bath with very little help from my guardian angel, @deadbeet003... he even braided my hair with the help of a YouTube tutorial!! He has been amazing. He also, has mastered the art of the Lovenox injections #soproudofhim. I still can’t lift almost anything and can hardly use my arms at all, but it’s getting better. People have been stopping by with food and flowers. Yesterday I was able to have my first actual meal. Between the dryness of mouth and the horrible medicine taste due to the medication I’m on, eating has been very challenging, but also getting better. This has been a very challenging experience, where I’ve been able to see and experience the hand of God. He brought me to this and He is definitely seeing me thru it! All Glory be to God, my savior!! #blessed #brca1 #feelitonthefirst #stlukes #brcapositive #prophylacticbilateralmastectomy #prophylactichysterectomy #momlife #myhusbandrocks #previvor #previvorjourney #cancersucks #breastiebestie #mysisterismyhero

Продолжаем наш рассказ о современных методах диагностики, сегодня поговорим о ☑МАММОГРАФИИ 
#АРНА_инфо
#Маммография

Основным и самым распространенным методом скрининга на РМЖ является МАММОГРАФИЯ. Данный метод использует рентгеновское излучение, а именно просвечивает молочную железу, и далее специально обученный доктор изучает отпечатанный на специальной пленке снимок на выявление засветок и затемнений.

Точность диагностики зависит от ряда параметров – плотности молочной железы, качества оборудования, качества рентгеновской пленки, проявочной химии, качества сжатия молочной железы в аппарате и квалификации доктора. Точность образования размером от 1 см составляет от 60 до 90%. Совсем малые образования не видны. При этом любое подтверждение злокачественности образования осуществляется проведением биопсии. При этом по множественным исследованиям только 36.5% образований, объявленных после маммографии опасными, являются действительно злокачественными. Технология используется уже более 35 лет.

One of my FAVORITE things to do is discover new places to have brunch! If you know anything about me, it’s that I LOVE me some Eggs Benedict on a Saturday... when they brought out my plate I screamed out “FOOBS!” I feel like my favorite meal has a whole new meaning to it now (•)(•) Have a mimosa with someone you love this weekend, let go of the stress, and remember what’s important. Who knew brunch would be so therapeutic? 😂💕🙈 Shoutout to @pushkinsrestaurant !

Breasties 💗
I have been more quiet since my exchange surgery  and especially since i passed the 6 weeks of recovery.
After 5 months i sarted to work a lot again and give my bodycombat class, as well as sporting every day for the rest of the week.
Adjusting to the foobs has been challenging, and from my personnal experience especially while sporting.
Being under the muscle, it has been super strange to do bench press,  lat pulldowns, flies, push ups, dips...
It feels like the pressure on the implants is gonna make the girls pop out. (I did succeed in doing burpees  and i claped for myself so damn hard )
I am a firm believer that even if we do not have the possibility to use our chest muscle completely, the small part we can use (about 25%) can definitely get stronger.
.
.
I have been training as much as i used to (6 days a week) and apart from the fact that i am not in the same shape i used to be a year ago, muscle memory game is very strong and i already see a huge difference.  I am confident i will get that all back sooner than later.
I did had to hold myself from going too hard on trainings because if i learned one crucial thing of this process (among others) is that you achieve much more by listening to your body and go slow, steady and focused.
.
.
Trust in yourself and believe you can do it. There are adjusments to make, and you got to work hard for it but determination and dedication can bring you a long way...
And dont give up! You are a masterpiece and a work in progress! Simultaneously 😊
Life is beautiful, and so are you!

This week has consisted of bruises, surgical scars, antibiotics, drains, colorful drainage and sponge baths 😱. Also, one of the meds I’m on must cause dry mouth as a side effect because my mouth is super dry and I’m having a hard time eating. On the other hand, I am also enjoying the pampering.  My favorite survivor @adavilagarcia came over today to take me to a salon for a shampoo and blow dry. Everyone there was super sweet. I guess my point is that luckily this has not been as bad as I thought. Don’t get me wrong, it is VERY painful and I don’t know where I’d be without pain medication, but if all of this is the price to pay to be cancer free... I’d do it again without hesitation. As for now, I’m just anxiously waiting for the reconstruction process to begin in a couple of months!! #feelitonthefirst #brca1 #stlukes #blessed #brcapositive #previvor #breastiebestie #mysisterismyhero #iampink #fightlikeagirl #houstonsurgeons #texasbornandraised #genetics

All glory be to God... I am alive, well and ready to go home.
So here it goes... because I am #brca1 positive my chances of having breast and ovarian cancer in the future are much much higher than those of a “normal” person therefore, after ample thought and consideration I decided to be proactive and do what #angelinajolie did back in 2013... yesterday I had preventative surgery. This was not a decision made lightly. I fought with it constantly, but at the end I decided my health was most important... i have to be healthy for my kids!! My fears were (maybe still are) many, but breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and uterine cancer are not among those fears. With my family as my top priority, I conquered my fear and faced MY truth. Because of my profession, I KNOW cancer. I live and breath cancer everyday and i KNOW what it’s capable of destroying. Not a risk I’m willing to take. What do you do to stay healthy? Eat right? Exercise? That’s awesome, but do you feel your breasts monthly? Do you get yearly Pap smears? Do you visit your doctor regularly or only when you need him? Please, please honor God by honoring and taking care of the beautiful body He blessed you with! #beproactive #previvor #breasties #breastiesforlife #cancersucks #iampink #mysisterismyhero #stlukes #bestsurgeonever #texasbornandraised #brca1 #brcapositive #blessed #feelitonthefirst

I’m baaaaack!! It’s been almost 2 months since I’ve walked & I’ve gained 10 lbs back. ☹️ I heard about Thrive’s new patch- Burn- and I ordered it to help me reach my goal of 50 lbs gone by my 40th birthday. I am so excited for it to arrive & I’ll let you know how it goes! So as of today, I have 84 days to lose 23.2 lbs. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 #exercise #health #healthy #fitness #weightloss #surgeryrecovery #prophylacticmastectomy #brca #brcapositive #brca2positive #brca2 #bebrcaware #new #newyear #goals #walk #walking #treadmill #fibromyalgia #fibro #gettingfitfor40 #geterdone #dothehardthings #endorphins #myfitnesspal #caloriecounting #calorieburning #thrive #burn #newproduct

Dear Breastie,
You are beautiful. You are stunning in the most honest of ways.... so much so, that I can’t help but stop and stare. Trying to take in the essence of who you are. Your courage to chose the path you did, follow through on those decisions, and carry yourself the way you do humbles me and leaves me awestruck. Your scars tell a story that is uniquely yours. They prove a journey that no one can take from you. They show that you have conquered and overcome. Your tired body is evidence of a fighter. One who even when she gets knocked down, continues to get back up. Over and over again. The sparkle in your tear filled eyes, and smile that will always be yours to share, stops me in my tracks. You WILL heal. You are worth loving. You are NOT an inconvenience or second choice. You are loved and treasured. You are truly the most honest type of beautiful I have ever witnessed. So pure in every way. And YOU are the type of woman I want to be. A woman who turns her pain into power. .

This letter I ultimately wrote to myself. Sometimes you need to be your own best friend, and remind yourself of who you are. But I’m sharing because I want to dedicate this to all of the incredible honestly-beautiful breasties all over. Remember who you are, and that you’re worth loving. Simply just by being you. .

Anyone else start stool softeners a week or more before surgery!? I’ve NEVER been in a situation where I’ve needed opioids.... so my fear of constipation is real! 🤪.

...Now what?... Any other Breasties struggle with identity after returning back to the routine of “normal” life? Its been seven months since my exchange surgery, and It’s been a lot harder than I expected. I find myself questioning EVERYTHING. Who am I? Why am I doing what I’m doing now? What’s the point? Feeling anxious and depressed at times... confused... it’s weird because I look at the photos of who I was during my recovery process, and honestly don’t recognize that girl... I can’t relate to her. Her strength and persistence. She seems so distant from me right now... but deep inside I just desperately want to be that girl again... But how? Is that possible? This is hard. Lonely. And confusing.... now what? Anyone else ever feel this way after their surgeries?

Does BRCA ring a bell? The pathological mutation in either of the #BRCA1 and #BRCA2 genes may produce a hereditary breast-ovarian cancer syndrome.
Speak to your doctor about getting tested or prophylactic medication.
🇬🇷
Σου λέει κάτι το #BRCA; Οι παθολογικές μεταλλάξεις στα γονίδια BRCA1 και BRCA2 είναι αυτές που προκαλούν τον κληρονομικό καρκίνο του μαστού και των ωοθηκών.
Ρώτα τον γιατρό σου για τον προσυμπτωματικό έλεγχο και την προληπτική φαρμακευτική αγωγή.

Często podkreślam, że zachorowałam mając niespełna 27 lat. To strasznie za młodo na takie choroby ale są kobiety, które zachorowały wcześniej... To przerażające, że choroba przychodzi w każdym momencie, dotyka nie tylko osoby starsze. Często atakuje z nienacka, niespodziewanie. Tyle razy słyszałam "ale ja zawsze zdrowa byłam, zdrowo się prowadziłam a tu rak?! " no tam no... Rak. On nie pyta czy masz plany, marzenia. Melduje się w Twoim organizmie i tak relaksuje się jak na wakacjach na Twój koszt. Ten koszt to zdrowie. 
Jak wyczułam guza w piersi od razu poszłam do lekarza. Co prawda stwierdził, przez badanie palpitacyjne, że to NIC! I kiedyś tam mogę zrobić usg. Super:) bo co? Bo jestem za młoda na chorowanie? Nie dawało mi to spokoju. Drugi lekarz zrobił USG i skierował do chirurga zaznaczając, że to zmiana łagodna. I dopiero 3(!) lekarz zauważył coś nietypowego w tym guzie. Zlecił biopsje gruboigłową. No a dalej to już wiecie jak to szło. Nigdy nie ignorujcie problemów ze zdrowiem. Jeśli czujecie się nie doinformowani i zlekceważeni, zmieńcie lekarza. Nie można płacić swoim zdrowiem i życiem za niekompetentne podejście doktora. Prawda jest taka, że tylko biopsja daje nam pewność z jakimi komórkami mamy do czynienia w guzie. 
Profilaktyka, mądre podejście do leczenia, badania i świadomość, że zachorować może każdy iiiii... Zaufać intuicji:)

Kids slept in. Mama got to play with her hair and makeup. This is a very rare occasion. I work 12 hour shifts and truly don’t have the energy or care to pretty myself up for work. 😛 With my PDM in 2 weeks this will probably for the last time I play with my hair and makeup for a while. This will be my first experience with general anesthesia and my biggest fear is waking up in immense pain and vomiting because I hate that. 😝 Besides that, I’m pretty calm and I hope it lasts. .
.
.

I’d really love to hear from you gals who have completed your surgery and share your experience, tips, etc! 😊 .

Meet the woman behind "my plastic surgeon"
♥️♥️
.
Today was my last appointment (check-up)
And i will see her in january again to see if i still need (/want) fat grafting.
I have had moments where she scared the c*** out of me by being too direct,
moments where i was angry because i felt like i was missing out on crucial informations, 
moments where i got anxious because of how "easy" it all sounded to her
(trust me i probably would have feel anxious  if it was sounding too "hard" too, i was just freaking out all day long)
moments where i blamed it all on her
(in my head🙌) etc.
But past all of that, she did her best and really a great job and i am thankful she is my PS.
Well i have never been annoyed to your face Anne, but i apologize for thinking it anyways😜
You rock!
.
.
Looking back, that woman is one hell of a badass and she loves her job.
I am happy she is my plastic surgeon, i came to trust her and i am happy she was the one who helped me through.
.
.
On another note; I am able to go back to the gym FINALLY!! And i will inaugurate that tomorrow morning before work.
.
.
what a crazy journey. But here or in the hospital, i got to meet some seriously awesome people and i am so grateful for that!
To a great week you guys!

RUNNING UPDATE
Sometimes things don’t always go as planned
//
When I started this year I was so excited to be pretty much completely healed from mastectomy and now I could really dig deep with training, but then a blow...
\\
I got a blood clot in my arm. I have no idea how I got it and neither do any of the doctors. At first they suspected malignancy somewhere (blood clots can be a symptom of pancreatic cancer), but then malignancy was ruled out. So subsequently, I was placed in blood thinners which has been MISERABLE. You can run through pain, but you can’t run through fainting (they make you very dizzy). //
I don’t know where this journey will take me or why I’m going through it. Maybe someone else is going to go through this too and my journey will guide them, like my mastectomy journey (hopefully) did for some of you. \\
Adversity comes in our lives to teach us lessons. Comment or DM me if you need to chat about some adversity in your life or if you are going through the same thing! I’d love to hear from you 💛

Five weeks today since my op and I marked the occasion by going to the gym for the first time since before the surgery. I couldn’t go all out, it’ll be a while til I can, and there’ll be no upper body exercises for quite some time. But a combined 30 minutes on the treadmill and bike is a start. It felt good to sweat #5weekspostop #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #gym #workout #motivation #feelsgoodtosweat #progress #buildingbackup #gains #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

В видео с программы «Завтрак с Жениной» на канале Медиаметрикс вы можете посмотреть, как основатель проекта ARNA Егор Мельников рассказывает, что такое метод жидкостной биопсии💉Метод был одобрен FDA (аналог Минздрава в США). В основе лежит принцип обнаружения в кровотоке результата распада клеток🌡
⠀
Наша разработка позволяет обнаружить в образцах крови наличие выявленных шести онкоспецифичных генов. Их повышенное количество в полученной пробе связано с начавшимся онкологическим процессом в ткани молочной железы пациента👌🏻
⠀
Друзья, интересно про метод? Мы ещё можем рассказать, как технологии ARNA Test связаны с блокчейном, как они работают и почему ARNA – это действительно невероятный ПРОРЫВ в науке. Об этом в одном из следующих постов...🙋🏻‍♀️

this was my reaction the first time my doctor agreed with me, the first time i didn’t need to fight for my own health. the day i realized that when you stand up & say what needs to be said, things will happen! i am only 23, which for some doctors that age is too young for preventative surgeries. well, for this girl - not so much. 23 is too old. i’ve known for almost 5 years that i’m brca1 positive, i would have gotten the surgery the next freaking day after i found out! but, because i was only 19 the doctors claimed i was too young. fast forward 4 years when i finally said OUT LOUD TO A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL him: you’re too young, you should be focusing on screening and lowering your bmi. me: i may be young, but i’m never too young to prevent cancer. i would like to get the surgery and ensure i can reduce my risk. i will focus on screening and lowering my bmi, but i will also be setting up a surgery date. BOOM! my breast cancer specialist was contacted, & i had a meeting with her we both agreed, and then my surgeon was contacted and the next day we met with him. he told me that he was PROUD of my decision. he was HAPPY to hear that i’ve taken my health into my own hands. 🌻
•
it is OKAY to tell a doctor what you need. it is OKAY to fight for what you need. you know your body better than anyone. i am so happy i finally said something - i would not be working towards my surgery without me saying anything. and here i am, working towards a big goal - a life saving goal. and the two doctors i need to support me - actually, truly, support me. stand up for your health, you will not be sorry! 🌸

BOOM! my breast cancer specialist was contacted, & i had a meeting with her we both agreed, and then my surgeon was contacted and the next day we met with him. he told me that he was PROUD of my decision. he was HAPPY to hear that i’ve taken my health into my own hands. 🌻 • it is OKAY to tell a doctor what you need. it is OKAY to fight for what you need. you know your body better than anyone. i am so happy i finally said something - i would not be working towards my surgery without me saying anything. and here i am, working towards a big goal - a life saving goal. and the two doctors i need to support me - actually, truly, support me. stand up for your health, you will not be sorry! 🌸

Don’t leave home without 💄✅📱✅👛✅ and now these 💊 why did the pain have to come back this week 😡 Surgeons advise that it’s normal and that it could come and go for months. Oh well, gotta focus on the bigger picture. And this week I switched to supermarket own brands of paracetamol and ibuprofen as constant purchases of panadol and nurofen were starting to bankrupt me.

Oglądam 246 raz. 246 raz zauważam coś nowego w tym filmie. Coś czego wcześnie nie widziałam. Źle interpretowałam.
#bridgetjones :) Uwielbiam wieczory z Toba. 
Nie jesteś idealna, masz swoje odchyły, nie znasz znaczenie słowa "umiar" albo "nie, dziękuję za wino", przypał to Twoje drugie imię, w ogóle to czarny kot jak Cie widzi to spierdala na drugą stronę ulicy i modli się, żebyś nie przeszla mu drogi:) Ale jesteś barwną postacią kobiety, która wie co w życiu ważne, na co stawiać, żeby wygrać, być sobą, kochać albo na zawsze albo wcale, żyć. Tak, widzę w Tobie, siebie. Nie wiem ile razy oglądałam wszystkie części #Bridget... Ale niech wyznacznikiem pozostaną słowa mojego syna. " Mamo oglądasz coś?" "Tak Filu."

A few days ago I reached out and met up with a support group for the first time. I was apprehensive about going, in fact I almost didn’t go as the pain returned on this day, but I’m glad I did as it was very worthwhile. The ladies were all lovely and each had their own tale of strength and courage to share. When times are tough I’d definitely recommend anyone reaching out others who are experiencing the same as you #reclaimyourcurves #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #lunchdate #supportgroup #ladieswholunch #thesedamnexpanders #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

The thing about growth is that it happens in such small increments that you don’t know it’s happening, you work at it and you stay disciplined and you feel like nothing has changed...until one day you look up and you’re getting barreled...well the look on my face says it all.

La cambia nunca ocurra en una dia, pero poco a poco, con practico y paciencia, puedas hacer cualquier cosa quieres que hacer! 🎥 @nnm.project .
Oh side note, this whole journey (surfing, growing, learning etc) is the subject of my forthcoming episodes...link in bio to read...I hope you click it 💪🏼

Feeling #positive after my appointment with the general breast surgeon yesterday. (Will see plastics again before surgery).
She thinks we caught it early. She thinks it’s small. She thinks it’s far enough away from my nipple that we can save them 🙌🏻 (will test pathology in the OR). She thinks planning a skin sparing double mastectomy with immediate implant reconstruction is a great idea, likely eliminating any need for radiation. She is hopefully that if my (sentinel) lymph nodes are clear, that I can hopefully dodge chemo (final pathology to come 2.5 weeks after surgery).
I will find out in the next couple of days when surgery will be, but it should fall within the next 3 weeks. I got this 💪🏻
Thanks to my girl @mommahoang1 for coming with me and providing me constant love and support, and for being my head when I forget mine 🧠

I can’t even begin to put into words how much this guy means to me or describe how amazing he has been through this whole journey. From diagnosis to decision making, pre op, surgery day, during my hospital stay, and now during recovery period he has put his own life on hold to be by my side night and day. He has listened, advised, counselled, supported, encouraged, held my hand and had my back each and every step of the way. He has truly made the hard times easier and I think I’d be in a much worse place if it weren’t for having him in my life. @whileycoyote76 the greatest person I have ever met, thank you for being you.

Curly hair don’t care! This evening I took my first full shower since my op. I say full shower as it’s the first time I got my chest fully under the water. It might sound like a minor thing but I was pretty apprehensive about doing it. I can’t say it was easy, it felt very strange, but I did it, with the fantastic support of @whileycoyote76 as usual. Now rocking the curls for a change. Oh, and the tea towel on the shoulder is because I was nominated to be head chef for the night. Yikes! #postop #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #healing #curlyhairdontcare #milestones #headchef #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

It’s more than just a selfie. It’s an appreciation of yourself, who you are and all the beauty you bring to the world. The last year has been a true struggle to love who I am, to put myself first and to appreciate my body despite the scars. My life hasn’t been easy but the fight has sure as hell been worth it.

Throwback to a week post double Mastectomy.
.
.
The emotional roller coaster is real.
But never block what you are feeling.
Feel it all, own it all.
It is part of the process, part of the acceptance.
This is not a boob job, even if we are able (some of us, not all) to go bigger than our god given breasts and we sometimes do, it still has nothing to do with a breast augmentation.
Fact is,boobs get bigger and smaller in one's lifetime.
But after mastectomy
Fact is, we do not have breasts anymore. They are amputated.
Fact is, we do not feel our breasts anymore.
Fact is, it is emotionally heavy.
Fact is, when a woman decides (if possible of course, it depends on everyon's diagnosis) to go bigger with reconstruction(if reconstruction is possible) it is not a boob job.
It is merely a way of  making things just a little easier to accept, giving you at least something in the proces  you can have control on.
Be gentle with remarks to people you know who have had these kind of surgeries.
Its not "at least you have new boobs!" , its not "free tities".
Its a loss and we all try to deal with it in our own way. And sometimes it helps to have the promise of at least being able to choose the size and shape of your implants.
They wont move , anymore. 
They will stay the way they are for our lives.
Being able to choose a size is not something that is given to everyone either.
Remember that the next time you want to be supportive to a woman who's had mastectomy , with or without reconstruction.
Never judge, understand.
You actually  do not have to say anything, sometimes silence and a warm smile or a (gentle) hug is worth a thousand words.

Друзья!❤️
Спасибо тем, кто присоединился к нам недавно. Для вас мы ещё раз расскажем о том, что из себя представляет наше открытие - ARNA Test.
⠀
По международной статистике, рак молочной железы угрожает каждой ВОСЬМОЙ женщине❗️Это самое распространенное онкологическое заболевание, в том числе и в России. (Данные - Российский Центр информационных технологий и эпидемиологических исследований в области онкологии)▫️
⠀
Мы с вами уже знаем, что именно РАННЯЯ диагностика онкологических заболеваний увеличивает шансы ПОЛНОГО выздоровления❗️
Звучит обнадеживающе, правда?
⠀
Но в реальности не всегда есть возможность диагностировать болезнь в самом её начале, когда возможность вылечиться так велика☝🏻
⠀
Наша наука идёт вперед. Компания Арна Дженомикс разработала тест, который способен обнаруживать наличие опухолевого процесса в тканях молочной железы с точностью 95% на самых ранних стадиях заболевания, когда другие методы диагностики еще НЕ СПОСОБНЫ выявить очаг или оценить преобразование доброкачественного процесса в злокачественный👀
⠀
❗️Технология теста ARNA BC защищена Патентом РФ №2630648 «Способ диагностики заболевания, сопровождающегося повышенной гибелью клеток, и набор для его осуществления»❗️
⠀
Это настоящая гордость и достижение российских микробиологов. Мы видим своей миссией информирование как можно большего количества женщин, находящихся в группе риска о действительном состоянии их здоровья.
⠀
"Предупрежден - вооружен" - говорим мы. Уже сотни женщин сдали кровь в нашей ДНК-лаборатории и получили возможность контролировать ситуацию👍🏻
⠀
Мы ждём и вас!

Czy mam żal do losu, Boga, że zachorowałam ? Oczywiście,że miałam! Bo jakim prawem w wieku, niespełna, 27 lat można mieć raka?! Jak to?! Pierwszy szok to były właśnie płynące ze wsząd znaki zapytania: dlaczego Ja? Jak to mogło spotkać właśnie mnie?przecież nikt na raka piersi u mnie w rodzinie nie chorował... Był ogromny żal do Boga, że wystawia mnie na taka próbe... Ale... No właśnie, zawsze jest to słodkie "ale". Gdyby nie to co spotkało mnie w życiu, gdybym nie otarła się o śmierć, gdybym nie zobaczyła kruchości życia, gdybym nie doznała namacalnego dowodu na to, że no niestety, kurwa, nieśmiertelni to my nie jesteśmy, pewnie nadal żyłabym na pół gwizdka. Pół oddechu. Pół wiary w siebie. Pół miłości do Świata. Pół prawdziwej JA. Wkońcu to zauważyłam, to jak trzeba żyć, którą drogą iść. I już nigdy nie oglądać się za siebie i nie bać się jutra.

Today was back to work day. I felt very nervous and apprehensive about going back, in fact I burst into tears as soon as I saw someone (sorry Jo!). But when you’ve got such a beautiful little Year one class who were delighted to see me, not to mention wonderfully supportive staff, the steps taken to reach this significant milestone were made all that much easier. I’m so glad that my bosses, mentors and my team have and continue to be nothing but supportive, understanding and now welcoming. It has truly set my mind at ease and anyone who has been through this will know that looking after your mind is as important and challenging as looking after your body during these times. Love all my little cards and drawings that were sent to me after my operation. Year one, we got this! #postop #recovery #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #healing #backtowork #schoolteacher #teacherlyf #lovemystudents #lovemyclass #wonderfulcolleagues #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

This little girl has a strange obsession with licking my head, which is funny, but really is an issue at night when she steels my pillow and then insists on licking my head with her obscenely abrasive tongue.

I am so happy to have partnered with New York Presbyterian for a night to celebrate all survivors! Dr. Hametz will be discussing chemo and it’s effects on the heart and then my mom will be speaking (stage IV ovarian cancer survivor) and then “Racing Against  BRCA” will be screened and we will be doing a Q&A! Dinner and dessert included 😉
Please join us for a night of celebration! I can’t wait to see you all there!

Broken. When I look at this picture that’s the girl I see. I would have never imagined the path our lives would take, but this guy literally has picked me up crying off the floor a lot of nights and has reminded me that I’m not broken but still strong, brave, beautiful - even more so then before my whole Brca1 gene mutation. My life stopped, and a new one began and I’m not and will not be the same person as before but thank you Mike for completely getting that and for always choosing me, even if she’s the upgraded mutant version- even if that means walking through the door to someone who is a complete wreak. You lift me up every.single.day. And thank you for pushing me to connect with the @the_breasties - you lead me to them, they lead me to so many more beautiful women that all have helped pick up my broken pieces and put me back together. And lastly, thank you for always seeing past my smile to my tears behind it, for knowing what to say when no one else does and for completing me ❤️ All the men behind the #breasties thank you ❤️ #brca #brca2 #brcapositive #chicagoprevivor #chicagobreasties #breasties #fiance #breastcancerwarriors #ovariancancer #breastcancer

Two years ago today I got life changing news that I was positive for the BRCA2 gene. 
That means my chances of breast and/or ovarian cancers is greatly increased. 
From Sep. 2016 to Nov. 2017 I had 4 preventative surgeries, 1 procedure, 1 trip to the ER and many, many doctor’s visits.

It seems like a different lifetime even though the last surgery was only 7 months ago.

I am so grateful to the Lord for sustaining me thru that time and that I am healed. I am also thank you for wonderful, awesome surgeons that God provided for me including @drtroypittman as my plastic surgeon. .

Друзья, мы всё время говорим о том, что гарантированно предотвратить заболевание нельзя❗️
Но можно значительно снизить его риск.
⠀
Некоторые из них мы обсудили вчера. Лайк❤️и продолжим.
⠀
1. Неправильное питание, курение и алкоголь
2. Значительный лишний вес
3. Генетика
4. Возраст
5. Отсутствие спорта
6. Повышенная плотность молочной железы
7. Гормональные препараты
8. Семейный и личный анамнез
9. Облучение
10. Дефицит витамина Д.
⠀
Наш тест позволяет выявить болезнь на начальной стадии, когда остальные методы диагностки еще не в состоянии выявить опухоль🚫
⠀
Стоимость теста по акции - 9900 рублей
⠀
3 шага:
✅предварительная запись на сайте (ссылка в шапке профиля)
✅анализ крови в нашем ДНК-центре
✅результат
⠀
В случае обнаружения в клетках крови онкоспецифичных ДНК мы оказываем дальнейшее бесплатное диагностирование и сопровождение – направляем пациентов на современную 3D маммографию в клинике Первого Московского государственного медицинского университета им. И.М.Сеченова

Time to leave the bad hair days behind! Today I managed to wash, dry and straighten my hair totally independently. I am proud of this achievement even though it took all day. Well, all day including a lunch break and watching This Is Us on catch up. But seriously, doing anything and everything is taking so much longer at the moment. I’ve decided that when I next mention how long it takes to do something and someone with kids replies with their favourite line of, “Try having kids,” my comeback line is going to be, “Try having a mastectomy.” So there. #postoprecovery #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #goodhairday #littlethings #smallgoals #stillthegirlonthetrainwiththedrain #goingslow #everythingtakestime #struggles #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

*Warning*⚠️ - boobs 👉🏻 (.)(.) Today was my biopsy (2 sites, 4 specimens). I was terrified. I was a crying sweaty shaky anxious mess. Not (only) because it was a couple of needles. But because this whole process is getting real and scary, and I just want answers and to move forward. This was not the previvor process I was planning. 
My sister gave me a pep talk from the other side of the world 💕 @suzhillcoat 👯‍♀️ Thankfully one of my besties held my sweaty hand and told me it would all be ok. 
The local anaesthetic sucked, x2, and then I didn’t feel much. It wasn’t that bad. But this whole process is completely mind fucking me and overwhelming me..... Now I wait for results......still an anxious mess.

Ludzie czemu jesteście  toksyczni? 
Nie lubie zazdrości, mowa o tej ludzkiej, co wpisana jest w mentalność polaków. O tej zazdrości co jak sąsiad kupi sobie lepszą fure od Twojej to ze spoko gościa robi się nagle nadętym snobem i na bank kradnie bo Go stać. Mowa o tym, że my, każdy inny człowiek, każdy idealny na swój sposób, bez powtórkowy charakter, mamy nagle cechę wspólną, dość brzydką i wkurwiającą. Zazdrość. 
Wiecie kiedys jak jeszcze nie umiałam żyć i bałam się życia w samotności, bardzo dołowaly mnie zmyślone, wyssane z palca newsy na mój temat...
Teraz? A teraz mam to kurwa w dupie:) nie jestem pomidorowa żeby mnie każdy lubił.  Po wielu, wielu latach już wiem czemu ludzie są zazdrośni. Nie mają marzeń, celów, planów. Nie realizuja się w życiu, nie wymagają od siebie i czekają, że ktoś za nich przeżyje wszystko, da za nic wszystko co by czlowiek zapragnął.I jak spotykają ludzi, którzy coś osiągneli, mają dom, prace, miłość, rodzinę, z zazdrości i nie poradnosci życiowej nagle wypluwają cały jad za pomoca slow. Chcą zrujnować komuś życie bo sami są w dołku, nie są szczęśliwi.
Zazdrość to cecha osób, które nie mają w sobie marzeń. Masz marzenia to idziesz dalej. Działasz- osiągasz cel.

Co już nie jestem Twoją koleżanką?

Brca 1 / brakka arfberi á leið í sína fyrstu aðgerð til að láta fjarlægja brjóst og eggjastokka. Já krakkar mínir lífið er ekki alltaf dans á rósum, C’est la vie! Ég viðurkenni það að fá þessa niðurstöðu var ekki það auðveldasta en í dag er ég ótrúlega þakklát fyrir að hafa fengið að vita þetta og geta minnkað líkur á krabbameini með fyrirbyggjandi aðgerð 💗 Wish me luck🤘🏼

Yup, you said it kitty cat. Sixteen days post op and this thing does not want to leave my side. On the other hand it is not stopping progress being made with my breast reconstruction. I had my surgical tape removed and my first expansion today. It was a very weird feeling and they felt quite sore afterwards but I’m happy to get the ball rolling #breastexpanders #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #moreneedles #breastreconstruction #draindraingoaway #thegirlonthetrainwiththedrain #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

🔊 Believe in yourself!
.
.
And by that i mean : believe in yourself, trust your own judgment and choices, my solution might not be yours.
.
.
To illustrate that; 
having a preventatieve double mastectomy is a choice i made to reduce my chances of cancer from 87% to about 5%. I actually took my decision a week after i got the news that i had the BRCA2 mutation.
I knew without a doubt that this was the right decision for me.
However, this resonates with my personality.
I am a VERY impulsive person and I adapt very quickly to changes.
I am the kind of person who could wake up and decide to quit my job, change country, change life with no second thoughts, just because my gut feeling is saying so and i let it take over.
However, my choice in this does not mean  that it is right for everybody.
There is no right or wrong in this.
There are other options, like strict prevention which is getting scans and MRI more often than not to be on top of any changes in your breasts.
It is absolutely fine to take that option, it is absolutely fine to wait for your mastectomy if you want to get one, it is fine to go for a mastectomy, all decisions are fine because they are personal.
.
.
That being said, never let anybody tell you anything about what you've decided for your life. Once you made a decision, people can share their opinions on it but never let anybody impose their opinion on you.
At the end, do whatever the f you want.
Trust yourself and stand up for what you want and/or believe in.
.
.
Stay true to yourself and don't let anyone dim your shine!❤🙏🏻

Друзья! Сначала ваш лайк❤️, потом важное расскажем:
⠀
В первую очередь наш проект направлен на просвещение аудитории. Именно это САМОЕ важное в профилактике рака груди. Во вторую – на поддержку женщин, решившихся (или желающих решиться) на обследование.
⠀
Поэтому мы рассказываем вам факты об онкологии молочных желёз. Это первое, что мы можем сделать – проинформировать вас. Предупрежден – вооружен. Правда ведь❓
⠀
Итак. Самая распространенная форма рака В МИРЕ (и Россия тут не исключение) – это рак МЖ⚠️
По данным американского общества рака, у каждой восьмой женщины в течение жизни будет диагностирован рак молочной железы {1}
⠀
*по данным https://www.cancer.org
⠀
Статистика непреклонна. Поэтому компания ARNA Genomics (АРНА Дженомикс) разработала тест «ARNA BC», который способен обнаруживать наличие опухолевого процесса в ткани молочной железы с точностью 95%❗️
Наш тест может обнаруживать этот процесс НА САМЫХ РАННИХ СТАДИЯХ заболевания, когда другие методы диагностики еще не способны выявить патологический очаг🚫
То есть маммография, КТ, УЗИ – это обязательные, но не самые эффективные методы диагностики рака.

Определение заболевания происходит методом жидкостной биопсии, одобренный FDA (Food and Drug Administration) в США. Про метод жидкостной биопсии немало пишут в интернете (окей, гугл) или спрашивайте в комментариях⬇️⬇️⬇️
⠀
Технология теста защищена Патентом РФ №2630648 «Способ диагностики заболевания, сопровождающегося повышенной гибелью клеток, и набор для его осуществления»🌡
⠀
Стоимость теста ARNA по акции - 9900₽
⠀
3 шага:
✔️предварительная запись на сайте (ссылка в шапке профиля)
✔️анализ крови в нашем ДНК-центре
✔️результат
⠀
В случае обнаружения в клетках крови онкоспецифичных ДНК мы оказываем дальнейшее бесплатное диагностирование и сопровождение – направляем пациентов на современную 3D маммографию в клинике Первого Московского государственного медицинского университета им. И.М.Сеченова

Another day of firsts. First day post surgery of wearing a bra. For the foreseeable future I’ll be wearing stretchy, non-underwire bras which I’m hoping will help with my self confidence. They’re very different to what I was used to pre-op, but it felt good to wear one today. Also went on my first independent walk today. It felt great to be out in the sun #twoweekspostop #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #expanderslife  #tryingtobecomfortableinmyownskin #gainingconfidence #walking #sun #harbour #walkingsolo #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

It takes a lot to grow them out. It's a constant battle between your fears and insecurities. I believe the moment you realize that you're given only 1 chance you will learn to mute the noise and work towards what makes you happy. .

Being #brca2 positive my biggest fear is that I will have to battle the battle my mother fought and unfortunately lost.

What is your biggest fear?

My very happy and relieved face after being told I would NOT need the breast biopsy after all 🙌. Just need to follow up in 6 months for a repeat ultrasound to make sure there are no changes, then yearly MRIs for monitoring after that.

Hey you! You are worth a million bucks💖
.
When this process started i still was planning all kinds of things i needed to get done.
School, work, group lessons, intership etc.
It is difficult when you are constantly doing things to just stop and take 4 months (in my case) doing close to nothing but heal, as your body and mind are re-adjusting to all of these changes.
There is something i have learned during this process; that is to not walk past myself anymore.
It is ok to take time for yourself.
To sit, breath, feel, treat yourself.
It is ok to be "unproductive" in society's eyes.
You are worth a million bucks, and you actually are worth your own time.
I remember the moment i went into this thinking
《what am I gonna do with myself all this time?》
And here's the thing, you don't have to do anything.
Working on yourself and your healing process is a work of itself and a very rewarding one, you are busy as well, only in a different way.
And that is perfectly fine🙏🏻

Now that I’m recovering at home I’m getting some really good use out of these arm pillows. When the breast care nurse gave them to me in the hospital I didn’t give them a second thought. However my expanders can feel really uncomfortable at times - like I’m wearing a sports bra with two hard backed books stuffed down the front - and these arm pillows really help me to get into a relaxed, comfortable position during this period of R and R. @taylorface1 this blanket has also barely left my legs #ninedayspostop #mastectomy #brca2 #brcapositive #recovery #armpillow #comfort #healing #blankie #snugasabug #warmandtoasty #breastexpanders #meanstoanend #checkyourboobs #kickcancerintheballs

Flashback Friday to 2 years ago at the Breast Cancer run Boise, with this beauty - my mama. 💕 She insisted not missing this run even after completing chemo only a few months before the event. I am so blessed and forever thankful to God for allowing us to keep her on this earth for many more years to come. I love you Mama. .

Had a meeting with my amazing geneticist today. Checking on the girls. 💕🙌🏼(•)(•) You need to feel yours too!! We also talked about what’s next. Because I’m BRCA1&2+ no one really knows my true risk for ovarian cancer. Most doctors would suggest having my ovaries out at 35 (I’ll be 34 this December) but of course, having your ovaries taken out means early menopause. 😫👎🏼Lots of clinical research suggests that ovarian cancer actually begins in the Fallopian tubes. Sooooo......my geneticist and my OB are very comfortable with taking my Fallopian tubes now and waiting to take my ovaries at 40. 🙌🏼💕 We’ll continue our high risk screening of a blood test and ultrasound every year. But I am so incredibly grateful for the knowledge. We’re basically doing our best to learn all we can and make the most informed decisions for our family. And you should too! Know your family history.  Know your risks!  Feel up those tatas! .

This is me a week or so ago in a dressing room on date night trying to feel good in my new skin. This is me looking in the mirror and telling myself I'm beautiful and chosen and adored. This is me preaching to my own soul. 
I mentioned in my last post that I have a leaking tissue expander. As my surgeon said "there's no way". It's one of those things that doesn't happen. But it happened to me. I was supposed to be done with my expander fillings today but instead we had to add another 180 ccs of fluid to the left side (that we just added 185 ccs to on Tuesday). And I'll have to go back again on Monday and then every 4 days or so (when we're in town) until surgery at the end of March. 
It's not a huge deal but it kind of is. Each fill puts me out of commission for a good 6-8 hours. I feel a little weary and worn and not really great in my own skin (because these puppies are just temporary and super uncomfortable and annoying). This process of reconstruction is exactly that: a PROCESS. But such is life, right? I feel like not only is there a physical process happening but a spiritual one too. 
In this 'in between' time, I find myself having to put my eyes on the Lord because I'm just not strong enough on my own. 👉🏼And I wonder if maybe you're in the middle of a process to. Maybe you're in a place that you didn't pick or expect but it's where you're at. And maybe you need to remind your heart ❤and your soul that you are beautiful and chosen and adored by one amazing Heavenly Father. Maybe you need to remind yourself that this is a PROCESS and that the only place you can put your eyes is on Him. 👆🏼🙌🏼 Maybe you just need to remember that you're not alone. Maybe you need to remember that whatever process you're in the middle of, it will shower glory back on the Lord. 
Do you see it? Do you see the hope? 
Do you remember his promises? 
He is good. And worthy and strong. And He can take your disappointment and your anger and your bitterness and your defeat. Give it all to Him. 
You are beautiful. 💕
You are chosen. ✨
You are adored. 👑
Don't forget that in the middle of the process.
