Re: Op booked for 16th June

Hi MAHJfam20
Glad you have managed to get away for a few days. I took a couple of magazines in with me and phone. Op was the afternoon so read the mags in the morning, then people watched the rest of the time. All the best for Friday. Happy for you to message me if you have any questions you think I might be able to help you with. Positive thoughts as always xx

Re: Op booked for 16th June

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.

Hi Cosmo

Came home last night, bit sore as I have a drain in but keeping on top of the pain relief. Have to go back on Monday to have the drain taken out.
How are you feeling now?

Hi Ollybobs

 

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

Re: Op booked for 16th June

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

Re: Op booked for 16th June

Hi Cosmo
Yes day case as well for me. Have to be in for 7.30am. Operation is booked for 1.30pm. My daughter has to phone at 5pm for information on discharge. To be honest I would rather be at home recovering rather than on a ward. I get the smurf die on Friday morning. As we are close with op dates shall we PM each other or messenger. Fully understand if you would rather not. Xx

Hi Ollybobs

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

Op booked for 16th June

Hi All

 

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
