I am now just a little over 2 weeks post op. I can honestly say that I am pretty much now just doing normal things. Hubby has gone back to work.....thank goodness, and even though I am taking it easy, I can pretty much do all the things that's could do previously.
Hav a little discomfort under my arm, but this is just from the lymph node removal, so am sure that will settle down soon. Haven't seen a doctor or consultant since 2 days after I came home, and my next appointment is on 12th June. I then see my oncologist in the morning, hopefully to find out all of the nitty gritty... She should also be letting me know if I need rads. I then see. Y plastic in the afternoon, so that he can admire his handwork. Lol.
Big pants - I bought some in matalan - they are brilliant, and some in marks, they are not so good and twice the price. Thru to get ones that are firm fitting and go above your tummy button. I got my normal size, squeezed into then pre-op, but they fit perfectly now. Am going back to matalan for more, as you have to wear them 24/7 for 3 months. Not sexy, but they do the job!
Bras - was a 34/36 pre op, had to get 40 for 1st week after op, now in 38, hoping I will reduce at some point to 36' as I feel as. It as a house.
Enjoy grandchildren...... Anne x
