Re: Surgery today!!!

Hi gemini
I had a mastectomy and a Ld flap reconstruction 2 weeks ago, apart from feeling a bit sore and swollen. I'm just on paracetamol now. Take it easy and don't worry if you burst into tears, I did twice in hospital and the nurses were so understanding. Hope all goes well for you. Lots of hugs

Re: Surgery today!!!

Best of wishes today Gemini. There is nothing I can say that will prepare you sufficiently for your own individual experience. Don't feel ashamed to take as many drugs as you can to relieve any discomfort, don't worry if you cry and don't know why you are crying. I am on day 6 after my mastectomy and implant and starting to feel a bit better, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. Xxxxxxxx

Re: Surgery today!!!

Linda, good luck today . You will be fine, just go with the flow. I had WLE and SNB last June, then mx last August and yesterday implant recon .
My only advise is, take it easy, look after yourself. The armpit wound was the most sore, like a burning sensation, but it was manageable. Do not try to do any housework and eat lots of fruit.
Good luck 😃

Surgery today!!!

Hi everyone

Well after 4 weeks of waiting surgery day has arrived and i am feeling so nervous. Reading your post op posts have been keeping me calm (until this morning!) but i am trying to focus on it soon being over. I am having WLE SNB and a breast reduction too - has anyone else had the reduction at the same time? I should get home on Friday so please please send me any advice to help with the recovery.Thanks!

Good luck to everyone going for surgery or getting results today.

Best wishes to all
