Breast cancer. As I have it, I'm a bit obsessed.

Also, losing weight after breast cancer treatment. I've had four surgeries (mastectomy w/tram), emergency appendectomy (during chemo), hysterectomy, then emergency ooperectomy (don't ask). Suddenly in menopause. I take tamoxifen. I exercise an hour a day - tough things like spinning and hiking. I keep gaining weight. Yes, I eat. But do I really need to starve myself? Is it the meds? The surgery? The menopause?

Dr. Oliver,
I've read about various insurance companies cancelling or refusing to grant medical policies to women with breast implants, both silicone and saline. What's your take?

I'm curious about the various titles and societies of which plastic surgeons hold or belong to. For example, how important is it to be a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons vs. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons? I know it takes longer and more experience to become a member of the former, but, as consumers, is it important to look for this? Also, what is the difference between "member" and a "diplomate" of these societits?
