Well I had my surgery done yesterday. They are generous with the dilaudid, thank goodness, as the back pain is severe. (But I’ve had worse pain through Voldemort, so I feel like I can handle most anything.). It’s weird... I am not wearing any Gauze sponges, ABD pads or bandages or anything. I can just look down and see my new breast (from my back skin) sewn onto the front. And in the standing bathroom mirrors I can see a HUGE, maybe 10-12 inches long incision going horizontal from about
under the armpit and just over then central spine. A friend told me this scar evens out and goes flat, and the fat from the other side gets redispersed, so I won’t be flat-backed on one side, and rollly, lumpy on the other side. The doctor was able to gather up quite a lot of fat from this one side, and with the expander underneath (which she already expanded once) I may only need one more expansion in order for it to be equal to the other side. Thee is a lot more visible scar line on this left chest, so I hope my scar Rx cream works as well as before.
All for now. I can barely keep my eyes
Best of health and positive thoughts to all.
