I wanted to wish you good luck for your surgery today...as I write this I guess you will be well on your way.
I had this procedure although I had my sentinel lymph node located and scan the day before surgery.
As the other ladies have said, it is painless and just a little discomfort for a couple of days after. I had my treatment in France, where we live; I was a day patient and returned home a few hours after when my lovely husband made me scrambled eggs for supper. (They tasted really good and I have to mention his cooking skills)!
I was prescribed some painkillers which I didn’t really need and was able to remove the dressing myself about 48 hours after surgery!!! The scar is neat from the WLE and I’ve since had radiotherapy.
Sending you good wishes and positive thoughts...I hope these posts help you through.
Love Rosie xx
Nice to meet you!
I too was a bit nervous about the surgery - it turned out that the worst thing about it was that I wasn't able to sleep the night before.
I had the surgery at 10:30 am and woke up from surgery at 1:00. There was no pain at all.
When I got home I was tired and slept alot. But I was able to do some cooking the following day.
