concerned
about the
surgery
• What type of reconstruction is best for me and why?
• How much experience do you have with this procedure?
• Will the reconstruction match my remaining breast?
• How will it feel to the touch?
• What complications should I know about?
• What changes will there be to my breast over time?
• Can I see photographs of women who have had
reconstructions?

conscious
when
unclothed
I
couldn't
make
up my
mind
