My op (mx) is on Friday 23/6 so we have had a few days away touring borders and Scotland on motorcycle as I wont be able to get back out on it for quite a while. Home Thursday to prep for Friday-puzzle books etc.
Thinking of you today and sending all best wishes.
I ended up staying in overnight - but actually this was a blessing as it meant that the nursing team cleaned up and put on new dressings before I went home. so now 48 hours later - and just feeling a little uncomfortable and itchy. Important to stay on top of the pain relief and get lots of fresh air to clear out the after effects of anaesthetic. Hopefully you will be home for the weekend and able to sit out in the sun. Take care
I had mine done as a day case too. Just sod's law that it was a lot bigger than they thought (typical of the sort I have) so they couldn't remove it all. I am booked in for mastectomy on 23rd June... as a day case again, but this time ill be out with drains in.
Hope your surgery went well and that you are on the mend. Top tip...take the painkillers-don't try to stop them too soon. X
I am booked for surgery on Tuesday 13th June. Plan for breast conserving on right and redcution on left. Have spent most of this week 'nesting' getting on with the jobs that may not be up to next week. Its sort of like time has stood still. Got my sentinel node stuff on Monday - so looking forward to turning into a smurf for a few days. Am still amazed they can do this surgery in day case. Is this same for you
Just wondering if anyone else has their op booked for next week. I'm booked in for a mastectomy on Friday 16th June. Be good to talk to you if your op is in the same week.
Positive thoughts all all the way xx
