Chatsexgirls - Dating after breast cancer surgery

If you are having a lumpectomy with no lymph node dissection, it's likely that your surgery will be done on an outpatient basis.

I mentioned that my breasts are currently nipple-less, right? I would think that may be a little off-putting to some but I've been very honest with people I date. I still love and accept myself fully and if someone can too, great!

I am about two-thirds of the way through the process of my reconstruction, so I still have some work to be done. If they can't, that's a shame, because they are really missing out.

I have always been pretty comfortable with myself (inside and out).

That is not to say that I am exceptional; I just have always been very self-accepting. I adapted to my new body image with a fair amount of ease.

I guess where I'm going with this is that, yes, it is scary but so what?

Anyone who has been through this has certainly been through scarier things and lived to tell about them.

If someone else doesn't see that, they aren't looking hard enough and they're not worthy of you.

As I wrote in one of my previous articles, "The Breasts Don't Make the Babe!

Once the dust settles and you realize that you have survived and you have a new body, it can be very challenging to feel comfortable with your body image.
