I began to look for options for reconstruction. I wanted reconstruction but due to the radiation treatments, I had few options. Only tissue transfer would work and I have a bleeding disorder. Most surgeons that I met with did not want to take the risk. I needed experts, but had become too tired to keep searching.
Was I really going to this? What would I look like? Who voluntarily does this I thought to myself…. I do!! This is to save my life.
