Let the HUSI “Cleavage-Off” as suggested by molasses begin!

Today, it is ALL ABOUT ME ME ME!!!

I AM an attention whore for today, as I am using my tits to get some attention, although I have never read the manual of which CBB refers to:

It should also be pointed out that part of the function of tits is for getting attention. They're secondary sexual characteristics. LFT using her tits to get attention? Seems like she's read the fucking manual.
Please to be seeing my cleavage inside for the first & (probably) last time.

NOTE: Some pics possibly NSFW

Under normal circumstances I would not be posting pictures of my cleavage online, however, it seems that there is a recent uproar on HUSI regarding boobs and the mere topic thereof, which got me annoyed. That coupled with what I have just been through in the last 3 weeks, spurred me on to do this diary. Purple Stripes FlightTest was actually shocked when I asked him to take the photos that have been posted here. Why?, you may ask, because, I am admittedly somewhat of a prude when it comes to my body. Being slightly overweight doesn’t help matters much either. Blue Top I can remember the days when I tried to do the exercises to increase my bust size. I am sure many of the females on HUSI can remember the chant, “I must, I must, I must increase my bust!” By the time I was in high school I could hold a pencil under my boob without it falling to the ground. At the time this was the way to determine if you had large breasts. Those were only B cups. Yellow Bra When I got married the first time, we were trying to get pregnant so I was put on fertility drugs, which the doctor forgot to mention were steroids. I never got pregnant but my boobs crept up to a C cup. When I went through the divorce I lost 45 pounds but none of it was from my boobs. That was the time I really should have taken advantage of my feminine curves, but alas I was too shy to show off my assets. Braless Green Top Getting married the second time to my best friend, FT I got very comfortable and put on some weight, increasing my bust to a D cup. I would complain due to the excess weight of carrying them around all the time. I get the deep groves in my shoulders and can’t wait to get my bra off as soon as I get home. I find them extremely uncomfortable, but going braless is also uncomfortable, especially if running, riding horses or roller coasters, etc. Basically, anything that makes them bounce makes them hurt. FlightTest`s Hands I have started a fitness class in the hopes I could get the extra weight off while also toning and firming my body with the plan that I would be a nice “trophy” on hubbies arm. It was also my intention to have a reduction with a lift. We have a saying in the FlightTest household, “You want perky, you pay for perky.” Breast Cancer Bra I am grateful that FT likes smaller boobies as I really would prefer to have something between an A & B cup. Finding out I had breast cancer and needed a lumpectomy was not the way I wanted to reduce the size of my tit however (besides which it is only on one side). My next diary will have the whole gruesome story of the diagnosis & the surgery (preliminary report is they got all the cancer & it was not in the lymph nodes).  So in a way this diary is a farewell to my cleavage the way it was. I do not yet know what it looks like now as bandages prevent me from seeing anything. They remain until Sunday. Stay tuned for the whole story sometime within the next week or so.

Up until this morning, we've kept it pretty under wraps, so to speak. We didn't know what the surgery would reveal, but we kinda feel like they wouldn't have told us that the first look at the nodes looked okay if there was anything that looked at all suspicious. So we're still a bit apprehensive about the final pathology, but the stress levels are WAY down.

I can understand the under wrap bits by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #21 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 10:45:59 AM EST
a decade ago or so my dad had a spot on his lung. The radiologist said if it turned out to be cancer, he might as well live on a beach for six months, for that was all the time he would have.

Fortunately, it wasn't, but if it's something severe  you can't do much about, I can see keeping it hidden.

I'm typing a bunch of replies because her right side is a bit sore and typing aggrevates it. Even so, I'm amazed at how fast she's bouncing back.

Good for you for posting this. by toxicfur (4.00 / 7) #3 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 09:59:48 AM EST
Especially since I know from the experiences I've witnessed in my family that these sorts of surgeries can signficantly impact one's body image. I'm sending out positive thoughts that they did indeed get everything. Good luck!

She's shown an enormous amount of courage throughout this.

Courageous? by Mrs FlightTest (4.00 / 1) #38 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 01:39:18 PM EST
Didn't really think of it like that. Just one of those things you don't know what you've got til it's gone (or in this case is threatened to be gone). Don't know what it will look like when all is said & done. My mom turned out severly lopsided, as in her left side is a B & her right is a C. Of course her cancer was bigger than mine, so maybe I'll just have a dent in my right boob!

Yeah, it was shocking for us as well by FlightTest (4.00 / 1) #27 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 11:00:24 AM EST

Even having to go for a "second look" wasn't alarming as she has to do that almost every year. I think the real shock for me set in yesterday while she was in surgery. That was the toughest part for me, waiting for the surgeon to out and tell me it was all alright.

Yeah, I used the term Blind-sided myself. by Mrs FlightTest (4.00 / 1) #39 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 01:42:17 PM EST
I was not really expecting it to be cancer, but I did get worried when they did the biopsy (I will have details for those interested in my next diary).

We don't know yet by FlightTest (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 10:27:10 AM EST

We have a follow-up appointment with teh surgeon next week. He has mentioned radiation, but I think the exact course depends on the pathology on the tumor and the nodes.

Suffice to say, by ambrosen (4.00 / 3) #13 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 10:27:12 AM EST
I hope the preliminary reports are correct. You're in my thoughts.

I hope it all looks as good as it does in the earlier photos after. Just more manageable. And I really hope that's the only long term thing.

May you have all the strength you need for the fight.

Well, I think by FlightTest (4.00 / 1) #28 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 11:05:36 AM EST

that if the first look had any indications at all they probably wouldn't have said anything at that point.

We've been talking about getting her a reduction and lift anyways. So this may just accelerate that.

I sincerely by blixco (4.00 / 9) #14 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 10:29:08 AM EST
hope your recivery is swift and complete.  As you know, if there is anything the HUSi community can do, just ask.

I am confused about this:
however, it seems that there is a recent uproar on HUSI regarding boobs and the mere topic thereof, which got me annoyed.

This site is very boob-positive.  The uproar in that thread had nothing to do with boobs.

Glad you posted! Please let us know how things turn out!

Thanks by FlightTest (4.00 / 3) #24 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 10:56:56 AM EST

You're right, the things that annoyed her were only related to boobs by the fact that the diary was about boobs. And I agree that this site is quite boob-positive.

Thanks for your kind words. We're doing quite well with the surgery behind us. She probably won't post a detailed diary until we meet with the surgeon and get the full pathology.

And, for the record, nice cleavage.

I had no idea you were diagnosed as such!

We're all here pulling for you!

clock and I will have you in our thoughts.

We hadn't told many people by FlightTest (2.00 / 0) #33 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 11:32:39 AM EST

Our neighbors don't even know at this point. Originally she wasn't even going to put the breast cancer stuff in this diary. But finding the nodes apparently clear has lifted such a huge burden that she decided to talk about it.

Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts.

[ Parent ]
Wow by ad hoc (4.00 / 6) #26 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 10:59:32 AM EST
My mom went through that, it's a rough go. Keep up the exercises. Fight with the doctors when you need to. Good luck to you.
Close friendships and a private room can offer most of the things love does.
Teh doctors have been super by FlightTest (4.00 / 1) #29 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 11:09:38 AM EST

The surgeon was highly recommended by several doctors (even my AME!), not just our primary doc. Some of the techs know our primary doc and think very highly of him as well. So far, not a bit of fighting required (except with some office staff who didn't seem to inclined to do their jobs).

My own experience with the "Big Casino" were harrowing.

In this diary, you're taking it with much more style, courage, and humor than I ever did. You kick ass.

The humour is easier now by FlightTest (4.00 / 2) #32 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 11:27:26 AM EST

There was very little humour until we got the word that the nodes looked clean. And she does kick ass, fortunately, not mine. :)

that last photo was a shocker by webwench (4.00 / 9) #35 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 11:48:30 AM EST
Your delivery was... quite something there. I was just thinking, "Wow, she sure does have some nice lingerie!"

Good luck, take care of yourself, make the mister take care of you too, keep your spirits up, and maybe insert some other hackneyed phrases that well-meaning people always feel the need to pull out for occasions such as these when they want to express something and have no words to do so. Cancer is a real bitch.

Getting more attention than you since 1998.

Yeah, well by FlightTest (4.00 / 1) #36 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 12:38:20 PM EST

The last photo doesn't change the niceness of the other lingerie. :)

Thanks for the kind words and thoughts. It's never an easy thing to deal with, but since the surgery went so well, we're both in good spirits today.

[ Parent ]
Thanks for the compliment on the lingerie. by Mrs FlightTest (2.00 / 0) #55 Sat Apr 08, 2006 at 08:02:06 PM EST
Sorry for the shocker photo. FT wasn't sure I would want to post that last one, but I thought, why not? That's how they currently are appearing around here. I don't get to see what they look like til Sunday when I am allowed to remove the bandages & shower, but leave the steri-strips on.

I wish I had been watching the diaries closer while I was at work, then I could have included yours in the "hot boobs" tour of HuSi I took.

There may be a farewell to the cleavage-that-was, but I am confident that the cleavage-that-is/will-be is sure to be up to the above set standards.... err, you're boobies are nice, and they always will be, methinks.

I don't really think of myself as brave per se, since I didn't chose to go through this, I just have to.

"Going public" actually helps, because it gives me an outlet for what is happening to me and the words of encouragement are just that, encouraging.

There was even one of the techs who said she had said a prayer for me that really touched my heart. It does mean something.

So thanks again for your support.

Damn! I've been out of the loop too long. by purr (2.00 / 0) #65 Wed Jun 21, 2006 at 09:04:57 PM EST
Glad to hear the surgery is over and things look good.  I will have to catch up on your diary since I have been away so long and see how things are going.  I hope the best for you and yours.

I actually know how stressful this was for you.  I sort have not been around Husi for medical woes myself.  Now that I have not gotten the worse case scenario prognosis I am relieved of most of my stress.  I hope it is the same for you. If you go in later for cosmetic surgery and pay for the "perky", I want to know about it.  I have been thinking about doing it myself.

One more comment.  Loved the photos.  I am inspired by your photo collage.
Life is good when you are young. Then it sucks when you are old. And then you die. Live it while you got it.
