The big day is here, I booked my reconstruction and today I will be admitted into hospital for my surgery tomorrow morning at 7am. To say I am a little nervous is an understatement I am terrafied of being on the table for 10 hours it is such a long operation. I am having my good breast removed at this time as a precaution and having both reconstructed (tramflap). I guess the up side beside having 2 breasts is I get a tummy tuck at the same time.
Hello Ladies, My Oncologist has just stopped my Tamoxifen due to severe bone pain. I think I am on the hard road in this Cancer journey as every step of the way has been difficult so far, I am sure there is some lesson in this for me somewhere. Anyhow I am having a month drug free before I start the Zoladex Implant. Is anyone on this drug and if so how have you been on it?? Kathryne
Well it has been a very, very long year but I am happy to say the 1st Aniversary has come. I have had a mammogram and ultrasound and all was clear thank heavens, bone scans will be done in November. I have been given the details of a plastic surgeon to contact to discuss reconstruction and I will have the other breast removed at the same time. My hair is making a slow return now with some unwelcome greys and my eye lashes are making an even slower return, I am starting to feel better although I do become tired very easily and still need to take a nap or two daily.
On Tuesday I had the tests the Cardiologist requested after the turn I took on New Years Eve. It took 4 hours for them to be completed so it was a very long, exhausting day.
Yesterday he called me and requested I come see him in his rooms to discuss the results.
