Hello ladies how r u all sorry for the late reply feeling down after the operation because the iron level was very low starting to feel better .op went well thank god thank u for the well wishes hugs to all
How did operation go yesterday? Hope your home and feeling relieved that this part of your journey is over! Take care,
I had my op on 5th feb - wide local excision - the surgeon didn't like the term lumpectomy 🙂 - and I'm an absolute baby about operations. The only one I've had - for wisdom teeth - had me crying hysterically when I came round so I warned them about that - told them it was nothing personal, I just don't like being out of control.
I walked down, fell asleep whilst the anaesthesiologist was talking - how rude of me - and woke up bawling like a baby a little later apologising to the nurse who was looking after me because of the tears. By the time I was wheeled back to my room a little later I was fine. I crawled over into my bed, and was on my feet 30 mins later begging for the drip and canula to be taken out so I could go to the toilet. Tears are normal - I've cried lots since I was told this might be cancer. This is not an easy path we're on - it's scary, and we all try to be brave for everyone around us but crying is OK - it's how we feel and there's nothing wrong with honest emotions.
Hope the surgery goes well on Monday.

I had my op 2 weeks ago, was bit apprehensive but i had an emergency hysterectomy for firbroids 7 years ago so knew what to expect You do feel better after lump gone,. Ive my follow up appointment today, so ill know next stage, This is something we all hope will never happen to us,think scariest thing is so many of us seem to be such healthy people, i was, for a 60 plus woman very, i thought. All best for monday, sure will be fine.
Sorry to hear you are going through this but as others have said, it is quite normal how you are feeling.
I was terrified too - had never had an op before and was sure i wasn't going to wake up.
I don't think I had more than 2 or 3 hours sleep each night before I went in for my op. Believe me, it is really not as bad as you think it is going to be. Even when I woke up from the op, i was expecting to feel awful but I didn't, just felt a bit spaced out but was able to have a drink and biscuits before going home that night.
Hope it all goes well for you and try not to worry too much (easy said, I know)
you will be fine on Monday and all of us wish you well as you start this journey. I felt the same about the anaesthetic and as I was going into theatre I told the anaesthetist how I felt and to tell my family I loved them...... but there was no choice I had to have the surgery...... to make it worse I am a nurse so knew I would be fine
On a brighter note you will probably have blue pee and a blue nipple..from the dye injected prior to surgery....... the pee disappears quickly (but looks like blue loo) and the nipple looks smurf like and can take several weeks to go
The one thing to remember throughout this journey....drink plenty...and do the exercises you are shown for post surgery to get full mobility back.
Wishing you all the best
If I tell you I am the biggest coward when it comes to surgery/general anaesthetic you probably won't believe me but I promise it's true, I was pretty much a wreck in the lead up and I wept the whole day of my surgery until they put me under the anaesthetic. Worrying about it all was easily the most traumatic experience of my life so far (and I hope, ever!) but the reality is that it isn't nearly as bad as you think it will be. A quick look at the statistics will show you that actually it is very, very, very rare for anything to go wrong so you don't need to worry (although I suspect that it won't stop you!)
Also, I expected to come round feeling terrible and a bit of an invalid but actually within an hour I was on my second coffee and went for a little wander round the ward to see what facilities they had.
So, I think you're entirely normal to worry but take it from the lovely ladies on here, it won't be as bad as you think 🙂
