Hi Jenji sorry not been on here for a while. Recovering from my ordeal... Two weeks on and sore...breasts look good but the nerve pain from the port is excruciating...pathology results Thursday . Feel sick thinking of it. Hopefully your mastectomy went well and you recovering well.

I had mine two weeks ago, am driving, doing my exercises, living my life... long or short, I will not die before time!

Re: Surgery tomorrow and scared

I had a mastectomy and lymph node clearance 48 hrs ago. Drain has been taken away, I am back home and functioning. I have felt better, but I am OK. I was also very scared, but am doing the exercises to get moving again, and building up my strength for chemo which starts in about a month. I don't feel nearly as bad as I thought I would. You'll be fine.

Don't be afraid, night time is always the worst time, but in the morning put a smile on your face, and be optimistic. Surgeons know what they are doing, so many of us have been through this! You will be fine. Sending positive thoughts and prayers x

Hi Janey

I haven't been on here for a while as after my diagnosis I had to move house!

I am sending you all good thoughts and love for tomorrow.  I have my mastectomy on Wednesday and  the only thing that keeps my from the scaredness is to remember that thing they say if you are afraid of flying... The pilot intends to land safely...so does the surgeon and his/her team!

I hope you get a little sleep.

Surgery tomorrow and scared

Will be having surgery tomorrow. Tuesday 3rd sept. Immediate reconstruction of left breast with implants and right breast reduction. Not quite sure what to expect and feeling very nervous. Not sure if I will sleep tonight. Wish I could stop the roundabout now and get off wobble wobble wobble. Thanks to all on here that have offered me support over the last 6 weeks . Hopefully I will come out at the other end of this a stronger person. Will keep you all updated.

Keep fighting

Janey x
