Re: Just had op

Hi Gingernut, yes, the drain! I've got mine in a little bag which I carry around with me. At present its slung over the back of the chair, also got my hairbrush, hand cream and lip balm in it. I'm still feeling a bit woozy, are you? Thought I was doing much better but after I'd had a nice wash and changed my pjs yesterday I slept for four hours!!! I've got my appointment on 28 th. for results. They've already said I'm having everything thrown at me, so anything less is a bonus. 😬

Did you get to your party?

Re: Just had op

I will find out in about 3 weeks whether cancer really gone. Had mascetomy with implant reconstruction. In for one night. Feeling fragile because I live on own. Also went home with drain. It is a nuisance. Makes doing things harder especially when it is like Mary has a little lamb....,ever I go the drain has to go too.

Re: Just had op

Hi Gingernut, well done on having got rid of the cancer. The feeling is great, isn't it? I am coping with pain with the codeine phosphate the hospital gave me, plus a top up of ibroprufin. No pain really, more discomfort. Getting rid of the anaesthetic will take a week, I was told. I am much dozier today than I was yesterday. Had my op Monday and out same day with a nuisance of a drain.

Enjoy the birthday party.
