My friend S. and I have continued to research the variables that lead to and outcomes of the choice to be flat-chested after a mastectomy. Recently she interviewed me for articles on the websites Flyover Feminism and Mothering.com to align with IBC awareness week. Great job, S., and thank you for your efforts to raise the awareness of this important issue!
One of the articles received a comment from Melly with a link to another article. It's a great article. But even greater are the comments. Check out all of the positive feedback from other women who have chosen not to reconstruct. Of particular interest are the occasional insights into spousal support. Considering that women often feel pressured to reconstruct in order to remain attractive to their spouse, I think that some of the feedback here is particularly informative.
