Well, people keep telling me that this is the "good" part of breast cancer.
lolol..I actually don't see it that way, but I am going to try it.
they are going to cut on the same scare I already have there, from the initial surgery.
I remember when I was frst dx'd a friend of mine who also was dx'd last year said, "gretchen,
get ready for this to be a part of your life forever, and it will take at least a years bfore, things are back to as normall as they can be."
I thought, A YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! Come on, maybe 3-4 months...Well, now I know better.
Everything from the very beginning, seems to be moving in slow motion.
Even healing, and thats why I am a bit sfraid of the next surgery so close to the mesectomy.
The plastic surgeon was supposed to do it hen I had the mesectomy, but becasue of the lymph node issue, he opted to wait.
So tomarrow is the day,I get my new friend.
I don't know what it is, But through all the health issues
I have been through....... THIS has been the most emotional, it has been the hardest to go through,
It is all like I am walking in the fog, and every so often I am able to see just enough to keep me going.
