Patient quote of the day

"My mother lost her breasts. To cancer, I mean. She didn't, like, leave them somewhere or anything like that."

Whew. Glad she clarified. I always worry I'm going to leave my breasts laying around somewhere.

Dr. G looked like he needed clarification.

LOL...I had a friend whose grandmother had one removed. Her prosthesis sometimes went "wandering". Mainly up on her shoulder. She was rather blunt about it. "Damn, I lost my tit again!"

Oh crap. I left my breasts at school today. I'll have to have Luca drive me back tonight so I can pick them up.

Actually they are probably lying around in the freezer at the hospital. She might want to check there.

I know someone, but I'm not telling who, who left her breast prosthesis at a friend's house after spending a weekend there. She ended up having to make a phone call that began, "Hey, hi! Listen, did I leave my boob at your place?"

My mother, a dressmaker, used to use her prosthesis as a pin cushion. It caused a bit of consternation with clients when she was doing a fitting with them.
Then she acquired a new prosthesis which was filled with a kind of gel, she had to unlearn her habit of sticking pins in!

I lost weight and went from a 40D to a 32AA. I recently ran into someone I hadn't seen in years while wearing a sports bra (which does leave me totally flat-chested).

Her greeting:
"Holy crap, D! Where are your breasts?!"

Mystery of the missing boobies.

I remember reading an article about a man who had to have his arm amputated. He got tired of strangers asking him "What happened to your arm?" so he took to looking down at his empty sleeve in shock and yelling "Holy crap, I've LOST MY ARM!!!"

Teenage girls may find their breasts embarrassing at first, but they grow on you...

True story--Son in paramedic school, doing ER rotation. Medics bring in crayzee woman, who called an ambulance because she "lost her vagina." Son looks around, asks the medics "Well, did you look around for it?" Poor doc about spit his coffee out laughing.
