Hi Everyone
 
Just wanted to check in and say hi. Iam scheduled for tomarrow at 12 to be at the hospital. I would prefer earlier but they did not have anything, I hate not having my coffee.... I will be staying just overnight so I will be back home in my own bed in no time.
 
I will warn the Dr that there will be extra people and lots of pink, she will probably get a kick out of it.
 
Thanks for all of you support!

PS how long did it take all of you to recover from the mast?? I have read that it is not all that painful.

We really have had someone tell their doctor that and they just thought it was great. I hope we bring a smile to the doctors face and yours. Thinking of you and thanks to Kathy, I have PCE collecting our ladies in pink. L&H and Luck Joyce
How wonderful it would be to see Angels where there are only clouds. How sad it would be to see clouds where there are Angels.

The mast was the easiest of all the sugeries for me.  It's really not that painful. 
 
Thinking of you today...................

I had a modified radical mastectomy done and it was not that bad. What was worse was the tubes they put in for the lymph nodes being removed my tubes got plugged up. They cut nerves so alot of the pain you will not feel. good luck to you.

Hi Joyce, Kathy & Pam

I had my one wee checkup on Wednesday and I still have the drain!!! and my stitches in my tummy. I still had too much drainage to get rid of the drain so I have to wait until next Wednesday. I feel great, just some pain around the drain site. The insisions in my stomach are finally feeling back to normal. I had a chance to finally look at the insisions on the tummy and one is over 3 inches and the other is right at 3 inches, no wonder they hurt right after the surgery. I had thought they would be about a half inch boy was I wrong.

Pam have you had reconstruction??

Oh by the way my tram is not scheduled until April 17th, that is the soonest they could get me in..........I again was not happy that they could not schedule it earlier but nothing I could do about it. We are going to Vegas for my Hubbys sisters wedding on the 12th, I was hoping to have it done this month so I could show off the new boobies and tummy. The Dr said the best option on my other breast would be a reduction and a lift which is great. I will have the boobies of a 20 year old. LOL

L&H

You sound just like me!  LOL  I just love not wearing a bra.  It's so comfortable.  You will be able to show off the new booby and tummy soon enough.  It was several months before mine was comfortable enough to want to dress a little sexy again.  Sorry you have to wait so long and have to keep the drain another week.  That's a bummer.  I hated those things!  Glad you are feeling well.
L & H,
Kathy
