Rather than pages of writing, I've opted to create a video journal of this project. In each video segment, you will see that week's progress and hear how things are going. Some segments will show the chest unclothed, so please be prepared (and do not view in the coffee shop, ha ha.)
Overall, it is hoped that the journal will help others know what to expect and what to plan for, and to know that things they may be experiencing are common to others. In the videos, I usually note the weeks past MX (mastectomy), which expander fill (first, second, etc), and other info such as how full the expanders are at the time.
To separate the ladies in need of information (such as I have been) from the voyeurs, the link to the film is by request only. Simply ask for access in a comment below and I'll get back to you with a url. This is about a 1 hour viewing. I hope it helps to answer some of your questions and makes your own journey a little easier.
