    Brad Pitt has proven to the world (sorry hens) that the love of his life really is the Mother of his children, Angelina Jolie. He has stood beside her through thick and thin, the death of her Mother, to the heartbreaking decision she made to have a prophylactic mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. I have had the same surgery as Angie, and thankfully, I too did not have breast cancer, but it’s still a hard decision to take such a drastic step, but I also have a wonderful husband that was with me all the way, and believe me, that makes it so much easier. And let me assure the hen that had the gall to mention JA’s “real ones” that my husband says he cannot tell from” touch”, that my breasts are not “real ones”, they look and feel real to him, and they certainly feel real to me .I have so much admiration for Angelina for not keeping this a secret, but opening up about such an important subject in hopes of helping other women. Thanks Angie, and I know exactly what you mean when you said this in no way affected your femininity.

    Woman who lost her mother and sister to ovarian cancer empathizes with Angelina Jolie
    Rosina lost her mother at a young age to ovarian cancer. She and two of her sisters each had preventative surgeries to avoid developing the disease, but the one who did not, Erin, tragically passed away in December — 33 years after their mother.
    .
    When she read about Angelina Jolie having a double mastectomy, Rosina was not surprised.
    “I thought she would have had her ovaries removed first,” she said in her Queens home. “Like I did. Like three of my sisters did because our mother died of ovarian cancer in her 50s like Angelina’s mother did. And like my older sister died of ovarian cancer last December.”
    Rosina — not her real name — pauses as her face crumples into the tears that burst forth whenever she speaks of her mother and sister who died from this insidious disease.
    The Jolie story took Rosina back to November 1979, when she was 17 and went shopping with her mom for a new outfit to wear to a party.
    .
    “My mom was 53, but she wasn’t feeling too well that day,” remembers Rosina. “I remember walking around Massapequa Mall looking for an outfit. My mom started breathing heavy. She had to sit on a bench. My mother did absolutely everything for me and my four sisters. Everything.”
    Rosina’s mother often talked about her own mother, who died of ovarian cancer at 53.
    “My mom was haunted by her mom dying young,” Rosina says. “My mom did framed needlepoint pictures for all of us. I remember when she finished one for my younger sister Julie. She said it would be hers when she was gone. Like my mom knew she’d die young.”
    But in 1979, no one knew how to defuse the genetic time bombs ticking inside her body.
    .

    .
    Two weeks after that day at the mall, Rosina’s mother went to her doctor.
    “He told her she had ovarian cancer,” says Rosina. “Really, really bad. She just disappeared from our lives within a month. She died on Dec. 23, 1979.”
    Rosina and her sisters were never the same without their supermom who did everything for her girls.
    But life marched on.

    .
    Like millions of women across the globe, Rosina developed a silver screen crush on Brad Pitt. And she followed his career as he fell in love with Angelina Jolie.
    .
    “When I read about Angelina’s mother dying from ovarian cancer, I understood why she adopted so many kids so quickly,” Rosina says. “She wanted to gather a big family around her while she had time.”
    Rosina and her sisters all married and had children.
    “When my oldest sister, Debbie, reached 51, she was the first to get her ovaries removed,” Rosina says. “She didn’t want to die from what my grandmother and mother died from at 53. I remember her sitting on my stoop before she had the surgery saying she just wanted to live long enough to watch her kids graduate college and marry. She wanted grandkids.”
    .

    Two years later, cruel fate sent a drunken driver to kill Debbie on a country road at 53.
    Then in 2009, the next oldest sister, Erin, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. “She had been planning to get her ovaries removed, but she became so busy as a Hollywood producer she postponed it until it was too late,” Rosina says.
    .
    After Erin’s grim diagnosis, the three remaining sisters had bilateral oophorectomies, surgeries that rid themselves of that blessed part of the female anatomy that produces the miraculous eggs of life but can also kill those predisposed to ovarian cancer.
    “I was in and out of North Shore Hospital in a day with laparoscopic surgery,” says Rosina. “It brought on instant menopause. Hot flashes, mood swings, grouchiness. But you can only have all that if you are alive. I’m 50 now. I will not die from the same cancer as my mother. But I still live in fear because the doctor told me there is no guarantee, that the cancer gene might manifest itself somewhere else.”
    .

    Rosina’s sister, Erin, died in December — 33 years after their mother.
    When she read about Angelina Jolie having a double mastectomy and planning to have her ovaries removed, Rosina found the silver lining.
    “They have a beautiful family,” she says. “I wouldn’t want her or any mother leaving behind devastated kids like my mom did. We have never, ever gotten over the death of my mother at 53.”
    Then she started to cry.

    Angelina Jolie’s doctor blogs intimate details of the actor’s treatment

    Denis Campbell, health correspondent
    The Guardian, Wednesday 15 May 2013 20.21 BST

    Angelina Jolie was back at work preparing for her next film just four days after having a double mastectomy, her doctor has revealed in a detailed description of the actor’s months of treatment.

    The Oscar-winner underwent her double mastectomy on 16 February at the Pink Lotus Breast Centre in Beverly Hills, California, as the second of three operations to reduce her risk of breast cancer from 87% to 5%.

    \/ V V

    “On day four after her mastectomies I was pleased to find her not only in good spirits with bountiful energy, but with two walls in her house covered with freshly assembled storyboards for the next project she is directing. (YESSSS!!!!!)

    /\ /\ /\

    “All the while she spoke, six drains dangled from her chest, three on each side, fastened to an elastic belt around her waist,” wrote Dr Kristi Funk in a lengthy and intimate blogpost on the centre’s website that explained what Jolie underwent before, during and after her three surgeries.

    Despite her fame and constant trailing by the media, Jolie’s medical treatment had remained a secret until Tuesday, when she wrote about her decision in an article in the New York Times.

    She earned praise from breast cancer experts for flagging up the heightened genetic predisposition to the disease run by women who have inherited a faulty version of either the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene from one of their parents.

    Jolie approved Funk’s account of her treatment to help women at high risk because of their family history of either breast or ovarian cancer to understand what is involved if they opt to undergo surgery rather than regular scans and preventive drugs as a way of managing their risk.

    Jolie’s first operation, on 2 February, was a “nipple delay”, a procedure to rule out the presence of cancerous cells in the milk ducts around the nipple in women who have decided to preserve their nipples while almost all their breast tissue is removed during the mastectomy.

    “Her partner [Brad Pitt] was on hand to greet her as soon as she came around from the anaesthetic, as he was during each of the operations,” said Funk.

    Tests showed no sign of cancer.

    During the mastectomy a fortnight later, a plastic surgeon called Dr Jay Orringer also “performed the first stage breast reconstruction by placing tissue expanders with allograft”, which Funk describes as “synthetic sheets of material, that create a more natural look” for women having their breasts rebuilt.

    Despite an extra operation being involved to fit the tissue expanders, Jolie chose to have them, because they help maximise blood flow to the breast skin and nipple, said Funk.

    Ten weeks later, on 27 April, Jolie received breast implants during her third and final surgery, the reconstruction, “which went extremely well, bringing an end to her surgical journey”.

    Funk also detailed the myriad medications and supplements which Jolie took to help her wounds heal after each operation, reduce the risk of infection, lessen post-operative nausea, vomiting, swelling and bruising, get the anaesthetics out of her system, increase the amount of oxygen reaching her skin and minimise scarring.

    You comment about the FFers made me wonder about something – in light of yesterday’s news, are they STILL insisting that Angie’s a smack addict? LOL.
    .
    And then there’s their belief in the lies of Mr. IUC, Mel and BooHooHoo. Angie and Brad just kept 3 months of a delicate medical problem from leaking to the media…but…these FF idiots really think that people in Brad and Angie’s circle talk to lowlifes like those 3 sleazeballs and that they’re not pulling their stories out of their asses? Fvkcing morons. They all need to retire to the Home of the Criminally Stoopid – otherwise known as Ticky’s guesthouse…but only on the days she’s not making Squiggy live in it.

    I really don’t care about Brad Pitt and Angelina. So many people have the same type of surgery, and they don’t get this kind of publicity. This is ridiculous to make a hero out of someone just for having this surgery. I had major spine surgery at 17 and no one called me a hero. She is not a hero. She is an overexposed celebrity that had a surgery. Who cares!!!

    Jolie’s double mastectomy surgery reflects better breast reconstruction options
    .
    The latest breast reconstruction surgeries may begin at the time of the mastectomy — or even before, to preserve more of the patient’s breast through procedures such as ‘nipple delay.’ The demand for better surgeries is due in part to younger women like Jolie who choose to have their breasts removed because of BRCA gene mutations.
    .
    Younger women like Angelina Jolie, who discover they are high-risk for breast cancer and elect to have their breasts removed before it develops, are driving the trend towards better breast reconstruction options for everyone.
    .
    Immediate reconstruction procedures, in which breast reconstruction begins at the same time as the mastectomy, are now the “gold standard” for breast cancer patients, said Dr. Joshua Levine, chief of surgical services at the New York Center for the Advancement of Breast Reconstruction.
    It allows breast surgeons and plastic surgeons to collaborate on both removing the cancer and reconstructing more natural-looking breasts, he said.
    Still, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates only 30 percent of women are made aware of reconstruction options before having a mastectomy.
    “For the majority of women, immediate reconstruction is an option, and one that unfortunately women are not always told about,” said Dr. Gary Arishta, reconstructive microsurgeon at the PRMA Center for Advanced Breast Reconstruction in San Antonio, Texas.
    PHOTOS: STARS WHO HAVE BATTLED CANCER
    “Not too many years ago, women were told that they should wait to make sure their cancer was gone before having reconstructive surgery. But now the treatment results are very predictable, and (we know) the reconstruction doesn’t negatively impact cancer treatment.”
    Since the link between BRCA gene mutations and breast cancer was discovered in the mid-1990s, there has been a growing acceptance in the medical community of double mastectomy in women who don’t have cancer.
    A mutation of the BRCA1 gene indicates an 85 percent chance of developing breast cancer during a woman’s lifetime and a 44 percent chance of ovarian cancer before age 70. Removing both breasts does not completely prevent cancer – but lowers a woman’s risk to around that of a woman without the mutations.
    With that trend comes a demand for surgeries that minimize cancer risk but leave women with more reconstruction options.
    “Women have really been pushing plastic surgeons to come up with better options,” said Levine. “A 35-year-old woman who’s very active might think, ‘If I’m going to go into this surgery electively and give up my breasts, I want to at least be able to come out of this with a result that I think is acceptable and beautiful.’”
    RELATED: ANGELINA JOLIE REVEALS SHE UNDERWENT PREVENTATIVE DOUBLE MASTECTOMY
    Saving the patient’s own nipple and breast skin has been controversial because doctors are concerned with eradicating any trace of cancer. But improved techniques make it a more viable option, particularly for BRCA patients who have not developed cancer, Levine said.
    Jolie opted for an implant reconstruction procedure, in which a temporary implant is inserted at the same time the breast is removed. That implant is then filled with fluid to stretch the overlying skin and muscle, said Dr. Colleen McCarthy, reconstructive surgeon at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
    When the woman is happy with the volume of the temporary implant, she returns for a second surgery to swap in a permanent silicone implant.
    The process takes approximately four months, longer if surgeries must be coordinated around chemotherapy and radiation treatments, McCarthy said.
    Other types of reconstruction can be done with a patient’s own body tissue by taking skin and muscle from another part of the body, usually the abdomen, a procedure known as a TRAM flap.
    .
    These surgeries have also been refined in recent years, Levine said. He performs a different procedure known as perforator flap that removes the necessary skin, fat and blood vessels to reconstruct a breast while preserving the underlying abdominal muscle.
    In 20- and 30-year old women who may be slimmer in the abdomen, fat and skin can also be taken from the buttocks or thighs, Levine said. Scars can be minimized similar to a tummy tuck.
    Jolie’s surgeries also included a “nipple delay,” a procedure to preserve the patient’s own nipple, which is usually done about two weeks before the mastectomy.
    This involves cutting some of the blood vessels leading to the nipple through the breast, so that the nipple has a blood supply after the new breasts are reconstructed.
    .
    “You’re forcing the blood supply to find alternative routes through the skin, such that when you do remove the underlying breast gland, the blood supply is much more reliable,” Levine explained.

    .
    Many women feel the procedure provides better aesthetic results than reconstructing a nipple post-mastectomy, but it may not be an option for women who have already developed cancer close to the nipple or ducts.
    Improvements including smaller scars, shorter recovery times and being able to keep as much of one’s own breast as possible can help ease minds when women are faced with the often difficult choice to have their breasts removed, Levine said.
    “As techniques have improved, women are much more apt to do what may be a lifesaving procedure,” he said.
    And better procedures aren’t just about aesthetics, but about helping women and their families recover emotionally.
    “Having a mastectomy, you do lose a portion of yourself,” said McCarthy. “Our goal is to restore some of that sense of self and femininity. You want to feel good in a bra, in clothes.”
    Jolie echoed those sentiments in her op-ed: “It is reassuring that (my children) see nothing that makes them uncomfortable. They can see my small scars and that’s it,” Jolie wrote.
    “I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.”

    well you should stop reading about it and stop searching sites for threads and posting on them. but then that would mean you actually care right. STFU and leave. Nobody made you follow the news or read it. And Angie is not to blame because nobody in your life cared enough to support you the way she has been supported. Maybe you have a very negative and off putting attitude.

    Stop hating on others because you didn’t get the attention you wanted.
