Nip/Tuck Going Where No TV Show Has Gone Before....Male Breast Cancer, Mastectomy and Reconstruction

Wow. Wow. I don't know what to say other than that. I DVR'd Nip/Tuck and saw that the alpha-est of alpha males, the leadingest of leading men, the sexed-up thinly-veiled pansexual icon, Christian Troy has gotten diagnosed with breast cancer. Stage II, to boot. He had a mastectomy, and they showed it. Not sure why the nipple was spared, but alright, it's a start. He's going to have a DIEP-flap reconstruction, which means, I believe it is going to be pad of tissue taken from, most likely his belly, but possibly his buttocks or his back, and implanted where his breast tissue used to be.

Just don't let him die. Please.
