Re: op tommorow so scared

I was totally petrified before my first op.This was a few years ago,and was admitted the night before.I then went home for the night!! Drank red wine to help me sleep.The following day,had my WLE,and never looked back.It was fine,as was I.Since then have had another 11ops on breasts.
Nothing we can say will alleviate that horrible feeling,but,you will wake up feeling fine.
Let us know how you get on.Gentle hugs.

Just think tomorrow my cancer will be gone ,focus on that not the fact you will come back with one breast.getting rid of the cancer is more important.good luck for tomorrow.

Re: op tommorow so scared

Just sending you  loads of Huggles( that is my little grandsons special word) and we will all be here for you after your op. there is nothing wrong in being scared  and frightened. I was terrible when I went back 5 weeks ago for reduction to good side. just take everything slowly and gently. and chat to your Breast Care Nurse, mine is the best.

Re: op tommorow so scared

I know how hard it is going to be sleeping, if any, but think about the fact the blighter will be gone and you will be able to look forward to the next day.  Im nearly 2 years past now and having reduction to match other one. There may be hope for us all, if we keep going strong for each other
