Jane: Actually, my husband named them, the twins, now reflection on the actresses. No, I don’t have any anymore. I said goodbye to them. Female: Is that difficult? Jane: Not really, I decided in my mind that I was done with them when don’t need them so it really wasn’t. You know my plan is to go through reconstructive surgery and so again have a breast line I guess. It does make you feel very unbalance but at this point, I’m bandage quite a bit and everything, so it’s like not all that noticeable really. I’m sure when I take the bandages off, it would be a little different. No, they take everything. I don’t have nipples. And then they reconstruct, I know you find this fascinating, when they reconstruct, I mean they put the pockets of saline or whatever in and then they actually go back and tattoo the semblance of a nipple on. So, anyway that’s what I understand. Female: And they leave skin? Jane: Yes, they do try to leave skin. I don’t know how much skin I have but my surgeons said that he did try to leave skin and it would seem a little saggy between. No. It’s not to say that I won’t wake up six weeks from now and just have the total breakdown about that. I don’t know. But right now, it’s like I’m just so die in glad through the surgery and home, in my own environment that I don’t miss him yet. So, there are lots of things. I don’t think you can anticipate but like I said I don’t sit around and spend time worrying about it either. I mean I just don’t feel like that energy well spin at all. And probably was harder to loss my air because that was certainly something outward everyday. Well, I’m at home I probably—my little caps. I don’t wear my wig too much around the house. But when I go out, I always wear it. In fact, I wore in to have surgery. But then I took it off and put my little purple cap on and then they put a blue surgery cap over that when I was in the surgery. No, I think taking tape major amounts, some tape off your skin will be a little painful. But, it’s going to come off so just rip. I actually don’t know. Once I got through the chemo, the radiation that I probably going to have a prophylactic hysterectomy also. And so probably after that, I would say it well into the fall before I do that.
