I am a physical therapist who specializes in breast cancer rehabilitation and lymphedema. I have not had reconstruction myself, so I don't have first hand knowledge. But I do see breast cancer patients exclusively and have heard many stroies. I'm confident that you are not alone in being dissatisfied with your implants. It is very common. Several factors can affect their appearance such as capsular contracture. It's also very common to stop before getting your nipples done. I see many women who are burned out and are just done with the process and choose to bypass this last step. You are whole and beautiful despite the condition your breasts may be in. Perhaps consider attending a support group so you can share your feelings. This will benefit you and others. As far as Anastrozole is concerned, you might consider taking Cymbalta. It is not only an antidepressant, but can also help with other side affects some women experience on Anastrozole. For the weight and depression, try to walk briskly 3-5 hours per week to oxygenate your system. This will lift your mood and increase your metabolism. Take care.View Thread
