Well, I am now 3 weeks post op of the expander. The masectomy was much easier then the expander, every week, I go in to have cc's of saline placed in to enlarge the skin for the implant...It is going to take me awhile...But since I am not currently in any wet t shirt contests I really don't care how long it takes me.
Having breast cancer has made the Crohns worse then ever, but I refuse to call the GI, becasue since I am now off Humira, I am certain he will put me on prednisone, and I just cannot..no wait..I WILL NOT do that,
so I am dealing with it on my own.
I am either going 10 times a day or not going for days at a time ( pain meds)
But, I am trying to keep a positive attitude through it all.....I am looking forward to getting this all over, even through it may take up to a year between the reconstrucction and chemo.
which the jury is still out on the chemo thing, since my slides were not sent out as scheduled, so 7 weeks since masectomy and I still do not know if or when chemo will begin.
I want to thank all of you for always being here for me when I have needed to vent, scream rant etc., you are all a huge part of my life...and I can't imagine my life without you.
