Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it. Ernest Holmes
Many weeks a theme just organically presents itself to me. This week, it’s happening again. As you already know, Sunday was the third “cancerversary” of my mastectomy and TRAM flap reconstructive surgery. Having “the emotional memory of an elephant,” I found myself reflecting on the emotions of that day – one of the most mindful of my life.
I’m still in a reflective mood, so I want to share the premiere “Patient Profiles with Summit Medical Group” video I recently made. In it, I talk a lot about how cancer has affected my life, my attitudes about plastic surgery and reconstruction, and the impulsive thing I did to my plastic surgeon right before my second reconstructive surgery.
After you watch the video, please let me know how you felt about plastic surgery and reconstruction. Did you choose to have reconstruction? If so, did you feel comfortable in a plastic surgeon’s office? If it was difficult for you too, how did you deal with your discomfort?
