Hi Mishy, well done, that's got rid of the little so and so. Take it easy, eat light and drink loads. Crack on with the exercises, and get fit for the next step along the way. X
So glad to hear that you are the other side of your op, that is great.
Well for now concentrate on getting over your op and recovering, the rest can wait. Very god advise from Flyingarcher, and remember to do your exercises, they recommend 3 times a day, basic ones for the first week and then going on to the others from there.
Take it easy now and let others help you mate
Sending you a hug
Mishy, so pleased your little b has gone. Yes indeed, the RVI is a marvellous place. I'm a bit ahead of you, so want to reassure you that the next step along the way is not as scary as you are thinking. You will be told by your consultant that the chemo and radiotherapy are 'belt and braces'. It's like having to take nasty medicine, awful, but it fixes you. I had a ductal carcinoma with full node excision, and I have had my first chemo. I've been very very lucky, so far. The Freeman provided me with great anti sick pills which did the job. When I've been tired , I've rested, and have managed a walk almost every day. I'm now looking at round 2, so a bit nearer the end of my journey. I am being monitored very very carefully, and have been assured I will not be asked to do anything, or carry on with any treatment my body cannot take. It's cure, not kill!!! If you need some support then do try to call into Maggies. It's a wonderful place. Wishing you lots of luck with your onward journey. Might see you around. X
Glad the little bugger is gone to the lab to have horrid things done to it. Look after yourself. You will feel quite tired and fatigues for a while. Your under arm will likely be more troublesome than your boob. Be queen for a while and make sure everyone runs round you. Take regular painkillers for the next couple of days even if you don't need them. I upped my water intake and so got rid of the blue dye quite quickly.
you will feel ok but take it steady. An hour out may mean two hours bed rest afterwards for the first week.
it's been fab having this forum. I'm sure it helps the recovery process.
Glad I'm not the only one who did that Mishy ! Did all the things I didn't hink I'd be able to do post -op, then it turned out i was fine to do most things from about Day 2 (but not heavy stuff like hoovering stairs of course.) It's good to come back from hospital to a clean house anyway, especially as you'll be having visitors bearing choccies and flowers with a bit of luck. (For some reason I got rather a lot of bottels of wine.....). Good luck for tomorrow. XXX
I certainly did but just kept reminding myself that these people were the experts and they were going to make me better, getting rid of the cancer (I called it Mr Blobby).
Yes absoluetly still do, as told must be on medication and radiotherapy still to face.
Yet its all to help heal so I face these feelings of being out of control with facts and gratefulness treatments can do so much.
But depends how i feel each day.
I hope all goes well for you tomorrow, its so good to have surgery behind us.
Still have lots of feelings as this is a long journey, but we not alone and there is comfort in that.
