They passed federal laws against drive-thru mastectomies! Why would you want to put yourself at risk and go home the same day?! That is major surgery and you should take the proper time to recouperate before you go home and deal with pets and children! I hope you will have some help when you get home!
My thoughts and prayers will be with you on Friday. And also for that low score.
You have a good attitude and it sounds like lots of good support. You will do great. I had to stay overnight because of a late surgery, but lady was I ready to go home the next morning. (Well, after my crying jag at 7:00 am. I was so tired!!)
There is no place like home, especially when a pet is snuggling at your feet. (Mine barks though.)
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
I had a lumpectomy and sentinel node on April 13th. Before I was put to sleep, they did do the small needles around the nipple, but I promise you, they did not hurt. I think they did 4 and they were the smallest needles ever !!!. They felt like a little sting for less than 4 seconds each. I also had no trouble with the sentinel node.......I thought it would be in my arm pit, but actually it is lower than that and I had no pain, maybe a little discomfort, but really no pain. I wish you luck and give you my prayers and love,
Janis (Monroe, NC).
I'm starting my prayers for your surgery now. But I know you will do just fine. Remember to take it easy and let others take care of you. The only thing you should concentrate on now is healing and getting well.
Those kitties will keep you warm and loved. Mine knew something was up and wanted to be with me all the time after I got home. The big (not so intelligent one) wanted to "knead" my breast once! OUCH! I knew he didn't know what he was doing but it sure woke me up with a start. (and if anyone on here tells Snoopy I said that about his intelligence I'll deny deny deny, he is very loved)
Best of luck dear friend,
