Christina Applegate Had Breakdown After Mastectomy
Posted by Adam
CHRISTINA Applegate admits she had a breakdown after undergoing a double mastectomy in 2008.
In a new interview with More magazine, the actress admits she struggled to come to terms with losing both of her breasts.
“I miss my exquisite breasts sometimes,” she said.
The 40-year-old explains how she was denied the time to grieve, as the media learned about her surgery immediately following the operation.
“The good thing is that we got the information out, but talking about the facts of the disease, I didn’t have to see what was going on with me. I think when it slowed down, all that came crashing down,” she says.
Applegate, who welcomed her first child, Sadie Grace, in early 2011, hopes to have another with her partner, but sadly, it may not be an option.
“Because of some things that happened during my pregnancy, I don’t know if I can. I hope I can. We’ll see,” she says.
