Before cancer, I wouldn’t say I was in love with my body, but I enjoyed my curves.
Many women who choose reconstructive surgery after breast cancer are surprised at how different their breasts feel. Others are disappointed when the surgery doesn’t go as planned. And almost none are prepared for the complex emotions of coming to terms with ‘a new body.’
People can often have a complex relationship with their body. For me, it has become even more complicated as a result of cancer.
