Colby Love, 18, of Bethel Park stretches his tricep while in the middle of drills during swim practice, Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019, at Bethel Park High School in Bethel Park. Scars from his top surgery, which was completed in the fall of 2018, can be seen extending across his rib cage. “It was the whole like, I’m only swimming if I’m going to have surgery and there’s a really good chance I’m going to get denied for coverage, but everything ended up working out," Love says while explaining how and why he decided to swim again after taking a year off due to the decline in his mental health. "One of the things that is so dumbfounding to me," laughs Love, "[is] the fact that I literally was just out and then woke up and I didn’t have boobs anymore. It was just the most amazing thing in the entire world," remembers Love while reflecting on the moments after his top surgery.
