hope your recovery is going well.
Thanks for you suggested questions, I will make a list, including how big incision will be.
Take care xx
My surgery was slightly different...I had a single mastectomy and all lymph nodes cleared on 6th March...i was so shocked when I saw the size of my wound! I would certainly ask if there is any indication as to how big the incision will be! (Unless you're not worried about it of course! 💪)
You could ask if they will be operating on your lymph nodes...how long your recovery will be...if you need chemo...if you need radiotherapy...🎀
It's a scary time and your mind goes blank so if you think of any questions-write them down and take the list with you...
Hope all goes well...stay strong! 🎀💗💪

Are you having some kind of neo adjuvant therapy or is there some other reason for the delay?
No, I think the delay is because the surgeon is away, I did ask the breastcare nurse if the operation could be done sooner and she said no. I didn’t feel it appropriate to ask why I have to wait, I am just relieved I have a date, and light at the end of the tunnel.
Today I received a phone call from one of the breastcare nurses who gave me the date of my Lumpectomy, April 2nd, I will be seeing my consultant week after next to go through the details and also will give me chance to ask questions.
What sort of questions should I be asking?
This is all so new and I’m still getting used to the fact that I have BC.
