Hi Angel, good to hear you are recovering well. I can sympathise with the pain you have been getting. I have been cut around the top of my aerola too. The surgeon said I may lose sensitivity in my nipple area but bloody hell its the complete opposite at the moment! Only have two steristripd left on now and they are covering the actual 'wound'. Bit of a baby to take them off. I see the surgeon tomorrow afternoon for the results and the BC nurse said they would remove any remaining ones then, so I'm not worried.
This week has seemed to go so slowly. My husband had a dream last night that we we're climbing Everest and we were nearly at the top but then had to rest and set up camp and couldn't quite make it to the top just yet.
Just hoping that tomorrow we can start heading back down the mountain!
Take care xxpb
Glad you are doing ok. Your WLE sounds similar to mine, mine was next to the nipple but I had sentinel node biopsy as well. Thankfully my nodes were clear and my lump was 9mm so also a similar size.
I start radiotherapy on 13th May.
Yes countdown to results is nasty, try to rest and occupy your mind as much as you can but I know how difficult it is.
