Sending you best wishes for tomorrow....will be thinking of you xx
P.s some painkillers they give you may cause constipation so stock up on laxaives!!
One other thing I should have mentioned, make sure you take one of your comfy non-wired bras into hospital as you have to wear a bra 24/7 for the first 2 weeks after the op and they need to be comfortable ones! Good luck! xx
I am 49 also and had a double mastectomy with recon last October...I do have my family around me and they have been brilliant, but as you say we keep that smile on in front of others and have a moan online lol.
It does help to talk to others in the same position as sometimes you feel like you are the only one, when actually your not mad but its quite normal.
Thinking of you
