“Sometimes I wish for breast cancer so I can go through chemo, get skinny and then get a boob job.”
No, absolutely fucking not. First of all, you don’t necessarily lose weight from chemo. Based on some of the stories I’ve heard, some people actually gain weight. I’m not that far into treatment but I haven’t lost or gained any.
Second of all, look up pictures of breast reconstruction, it isn’t pretty. Did you know that those also aren’t real nipples? You wont have any feeling in your breasts. I haven’t even lost mine yet but the boob that has the cancer in it already doesn’t have a lot of feeling in it as it is. You also wont necessarily be getting a “boob job,” you could just get a lumpectomy. A lot of it is based on what your doctors think is best. No, they can’t make the decision for you, but it is something to consider when you are actually in that situation.
Lastly, you want to be skinny so bad? Go and fucking exercise and eat healthy.
The fact that anybody would want cancer for those superficial reasons absolutely disgusts me. All of the physical pain, emotional stress, sickness, and everything else that comes along with treatment of breast cancer isn’t even fucking worth it. Please, go fuck yourself if you really wish cancer upon yourself or anybody else for that matter.
Oh. My. God. This makes me livid. Thank you for putting this person in place.
I will never forget when I had my first PET scan in April and the technician was like, “Hey, at least you get to get a free boob job out of it.” Except NOT. And why would I want fake boobs anyway?! It was one of the most insensitive things I’ve heard during this whole process.
I’ve also gained about 14 pounds from chemo. Breast cancer chemo is one of the few I’ve been told that actually causes you to gain weight. WTF. Now, on top of feeling like crap and being bald, I’m a fat ass and I’m going to need a personal trainer to get my body back when I actually have the strength to work out again. Yeah, real easy, route to skinny, all right.
I can’t believe people actually say/think things like this. I don’t even know what else to say except wow…
I wouldn’t even wish this experience on my worst enemy. The physical and emotional scars that come with it, plus the damage to your credit and finances (even WITH insurance) is unreal. What a sorry excuse for humanity.
Thank you girls. I saw this and it made me sick. I know the comment was made out of ignorance, but really?! Use your brain. Cancer is no vacation and I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
