My "last" breast cancer related surgery turned out to be a little more major than first thought, not so much the surgery itself but the after effects of anesthesia. The final dx'd after 2.5 days in the hospital is mild congestive heart failure vs. pneumonia due to too many fluids being administered during surgery. I see my internist tomorrow for follow-up.
Yesterday after the 48 hours from surgery when I could shower was my first glance at surgery results. Yikes!! I thought DH and I were going to toss our cookies. The stiching had come undone and this dying piece of skin was black and had a open slit that was seeping blood. The doctors office just called and told me that on Thursday during my follow-up appt. that I would probably be surprised at what the doc tells me.!!!????? Not sure what that means.
So ladies, not that bad, but I do not want to "go under" again for a long time if ever.
Still reeling over Connie. Hugs to us all and as always you are all in my prayers.
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
