Re: 11 days on after mastecctomy .....

Thank you BBC Moderator and Emma. Yes I had good news - cancer all gone. Mammogram in Feb and Consultant in March when I may consider reconstruction as I do find it difficult to adjust. I am not an Exhibitionist but I did enjoy having a cleavage as I was 36C - what have I got now?? Outwardly my 'boob' looks good and no one can tell but when I look at my wardrobe my heart aches for those pre-MX days, occasionally I look at the photos I took on the eve of my Mastectomy op. Still its a small price to pay for your life so I must stop feeling sorry for myself!

Thanks everyone.

Hi There. Glad to hear you're doing well after MX. I'm nearly three months on and although still a bit stiff and numb am adjusting too. I've had to adapt my summer wardrobe, as bras aren't as dainty as before and clevage gone but I just see this as the 'new' me and an excuse to shop!!
Good luck Wednesday. I hope you hear good news.
Take care Emma xx

11 days on after mastecctomy .....

Hi Everyone, I am slowly getting used to my lop sided body. Had my drain out 9 days after MX. Been spending trying to find right 'boob' and bras. Everything is so costly! District Nurses have been great. I dread having the drain out but was advised to take a parecetomal and you know what, I did not feel anything. Did not even realise she had pulled it out until after the event.
Seeing my Consultant on Wed 17th July followed by Oncologist. After 3 WLE'samd MX please let this be the 'closure' to this awful episode, no radiotherapy please ....
Will update after the 17th July.
Best wishes to all

Diamondlady
