Well my blog was non existant. I know the words pain, hit by truck, extreme discomfort, bad back from sleeping in a curve, sleepless nights, more pain and lots of jabs must have been said to me but all I heard was new boob, you will love it and flat tummy. Boy was it a shock when I woke up on Friday night. I was very chipper as they were wheeling me in to the theatre area and I was cracking jokes and laughing but all that disappeared really fast. My surgeons and nursing staff were fantastic. I can not stop singing their praises.
The hospital has just rung to say that I will begin the recon process on Friday!...this Friday!!! That was sudden and totally unexpected. And!! Guess what? This morning I had Maria around to fit me with a replacement prosthesis as my one was split and leaking and just for good measure I bought a new bra as well!
I am so excited and also so scared! I am going the diep flap road (if all goes well) so it will be a biggy.
I will do my blog starting when I get back home from the hosp tomorrow after I go for the pre op stuff.
Wish me luck!!
2/12 years now and still I worry every time I have to go to the onc. I look around the waiting room and I know I am so lucky as there are so many sick people there but I still get the butterflies in the stomach. No need to panic though as everything was good and I left in record time, clutching my prescription for Arimidex.
I had my 2 year check today . Last week was my mammogram and today I saw Po the Onc. No wait today and I was in and out before I knew what was happening...... I think she had a hot date and wanted to get home early. She didn't even get my name right and called me by my surname! Anyway, everything seems OK which is good. I need to have a bonescan within the next few weeks so one more trip and then nothing until December.
Now I am totally confused. My doctor has told me I have a stress fracture in my right leg, most probably caused through taking the Arimidex tablets. She prescribed Protos to try and build up the bones. I only had a month's prescription as I was going to be seeing the onc.
