Now that everything is over, I am left with a breast that has:
- A hole where they put in the balloon catheter
- An incision that look a bit like railroad tracks in my armpit, where they took out the lymph nodes.
- A 3-inch, raised, purple scar where they removed the lump
- Just beneath the big, purple scar, a noticeable divot.
- Currently, a decidedly sunburned appearance where the radiation damage continues to surface.
