Hi, my wife was out of hospital same day after a masectomy (no recon) and SNB. They did insist on a "responsible adult" being with her for 24 hours, somehow managed to persude them I fitted the bill 🙂
Good luck with the OP and hope you're out quick!
Welcome to the breast buddie site.
Firstly, im sorry to hear of your recent diagnosis and sincerely hope your forthcoming operation goes smoothly.
Gosh a mum to a 3yr old and a full time job, you certainly are a busy bee! All I can say is every time someone offers help, grab it! You are going to feel a bit washed out after your surgery andcwill need to be kind to yourself and rest up as often as you can.
Im in a totally different situation, being a mum of 3 (but all of them grown up) and having a 30hr a week job and having just had 2 operations in the past month. All my surgery has left me feeling quite fatigued and a bit depressed.
Fortunately we all react differently and hopefully you will fly through this part of your journey to survive this dammed awful disease.
Good luck and sending you hugs and good wishes,
Love Lynne xxx
