I had to go thorough a second op to get clear margins, but it hadn't spread to my lymph nodes which was a huge relief. It didn't worry me too much about having another op. The only thing I found after having the 2nd op so quick, it was bruising on brusing in the area of your bc (four weeks to the day of the 1st) I was more relaxed, as I knew what to expect, no high blood pressure with worry, though I was more tired and needed sleeps in the afternoon to boost my engery. Hopefully going back to work on the 22nd September.
Take each day as it comes and your body will heal in its own time. Crack the whip when others are doing the housework for you, whilst you are drinking a lovely cup of tea or coffee with your feet up, also tell them if they have missed a bit. Go for a gentle walk, carvey or a clothes shopping, everybody tastes afe different. DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO! NOT WHAT OTHERS WANT YOU TO DO! Rant, Rave, even Swear like a trooper, but keep an open mind with postive thoughts. Lots of love & hugs.
Understandable to be thrown by a second op, but great news about the lymph nodes.
Focus on the positive. Easy to say, harder to do - I've been there! - but there is a lot to be relieved about here.
I have seen on here that ladies who have had to have a shave to get a clear margin say the second op is not as bad. Once she has chance to take it in she will be ok
Hugs to you both
I think that's more good than bad, but she probably doesnt feel that right now. Horrible to have to have another op, but hopefully she will feel better afterwards.
Sending my best wishes
