thanks all done now onwards and upwards with the treatment I go for follow up on the 18th .. 2 days after my birthday ! lets hope its a good present
Well my surgery is tomorrow now , wish me luck !!! I will post here once I am home and feeling human again , I think this has to be the worst part I am sure it will feel much better to know the that the breast has gone and the rest of the treatment can start . My NLP recordings have helped alot and I feel calm ish LOL
Thanks , will google for the bras ,
mouth not feeling to bad today I just needed to get dental work done before chemo , used to be a real baby about going to the dentist but all this kinda puts that into perspective
Amoena was recommended to me and I find their post surgery and sleep bras very comfy post double MX and snb. Button up pjs and for that matter tops also mean u dont have to stretch getting dressed. I also took ear plugs and eye mask in an attempt to get a good nights sleep! Also took arnica tablets although good idea to open bottle before surgery I belatedly discovered!!! Good luck
I have attached a link to our publication "Your operation and recovery" as I thought it may be helpful:
Very best wishes
Hi Rowan, I'm going into hospital today and have received lots of helpful information on what to take in with me from the BCN and the hospital. I was given a brouchure to look through with suggestions of bras to buy and even swimwear. Can't imagine I will be doing that for a while! I'm due to have a theraputic mammoplastic, today and I have to say yesterday I was a complete emotional wreck, whereas today I feel much more in control, even having time to type this to you. I would ring your BCN if you have any questions, they are so helpful. Good luck with your surgery I hope all goes well for you. Sorry to hear about your teeth that sounded painful too!
going for mastectomy and axillary node clearance on the 3rd of December , I decided against chemo first and just wanted to get it out , also decided against immediate reconstruction.
I am preparing myself mentally but not sure what to take into hospital and what bra to buy and where from .
I have support from my fella but he lives 1 hour away so its phone and chat on internet , lots of time on my own dwelling and trying t stay positive .
Today I had dental treatment extractions to teeth at the back that hadnt been able to be filled ... feeling a bit sore in the mouth now as anaesthetic wears off ...
Oh well tomorrow is another day closer to surgery and fighting on
