Karas Fight for her Body
Organized by: Kara Frawley
When I was 16 doctors told me I needed to have a breast reduction, I would never be able to walk if I didn't go through with the procedure and being a child at the time (and athlete so I needed to walk) I went through with it. Well it was all a lie, there were plenty of non invasive ways to help me strengthen my back without surgery. Doctors are supposed to help you, they are people you should be able to trust, well I am now practically flat chested, where before I was larger than a DD. I feel wronged, taken advantage of and now I don't feel like a woman. I spent years trying to love my body after what they did but have had no luck. After having my son I thought I would be able to love myself but all the pain came back when I was told they didn't reattach my milk ducts and due to that I was never able to breast feed my son. They took that experience away, but the worst part was that they told me it would have no effect, I would be able to have any other option as a mother. Another lie, as after giving birth I was told there was NO chance of me being able to breast feed and was forced to start formula before even leaving the hospital. I just want my body back, my life back, my hapiness. I want what they stole from me when I was 16.
