A woman who has had both her breasts removed, and also her womb and cervix, as a result of stage 4 breast cancer, has shared a video of what her body now looks like to show how the disease takes a toll on the body.
The woman went nude in the video and told of all she’s been through, including having 4 hysterectomies, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and more.
She said: “I have stage 4 breast cancer. Not only have I had both of my breasts amputated, I have had four hysterectomies so I can’t have any more kids. I’m done having kids because you know they took all my cervix and everything else out there.”
She added: “I have had radiation therapy. I’ve had chemotherapy…. And I may be having chemo again.”
She went on to show her bulging tummy and revealed that people ask if she’s pregnant but it’s simply the result of having your breasts removed. She said the fat which should have gone to her boobs now settle around her tummy region.
“Now this is what happens to your body when your breasts get amputated. I had nice-sized boobs. It just so happens I don’t have them anymore, so a lot of it is focused on my midsection ‘cos I don’t have any boobs,” she said.
“A lot of people think I’m pregnant but that’s not the case. It just became like this ever since I had surgery. I’ve had surgery so things got looking a little different. They took all my womb out. I don’t have a cervix, I don’t have any innards right now. Still have a vagina, but I don’t have any innards.”
She added: “Cancer has fucked my life up.”
