Hi Mandy, my lymph nodes are clear too PHEW. What a nightmare for you, sounds like they are sorting it though.
I am also having trouble healing. I have exactly what you decribe...how wierd is that? A black scabbed area above the horizontal scar on my breast, also size of a 50p piece.. The surgeon seems to think it will be ok & that he will be able to do my reconstruction in time for my wedding in November. I am worried though. If it doesnt heal he cant do the recon in time. I dont know whether to postpone the wedding.
I cant go as I am now as Im lopsided. If it was a normal holiday I wouldnt be bothered, but its my wedding & honeymoon in Jamaica & is costing a fortune. I want to feel good about how I look. I really dont know what to do.
I have been really upset today. Everyone thinks I should be over the moon, which I am in one way, but on the other hand now I know Im all clear, I can deal with the fact that I have lost my breast, nipple & feeling. The last few weeks have been awful as you know & its all hitting me.
We are now left with a deformed body, for the time being at least & we have to deal with that. I think this on top of maybe having to move the wedding has really got to me. I feel deflated & people dont understand why.
I hope you feel ok hun & thta all goes ok tomorrow. I will be thinking of you. Please let me know how you go on.
Love Cath xx
