I haven't heard back from my friend - I suggested we met in London but she hasn't come back to me.
I never did tell you what happened when I went for my re construction appt. the night before was when our son overdosed so we were in the hospital with him till about 2am - same hospital where I was rushed into last year after a bleed and they misdiagnosed and said it was an infection - so you can imagine by my appt at 9.30 the next day I was convinced I was the worst mum ever that Stoke was the last place I wanted to go for my op, my mother ad told my sister who told me that she wouldn't have the op - which made me wander whether i was doing the right thing and we walk into the waiting room and sitting there is a lady I know through work who also had breast cancer and a mastectomy but didn't need chemo and radio. She showed me ( and my husband!) her new boob and flat tummy, said the surgeon was Marvellous and stoke was fantastic. It was the weirdest feeling but I really felt someone was there with me saying you see everything is ok and all the angst and self doubt went and I felt really peaceful and calm! The surgeon was very nice and very good looking and said if I went with someone else I could have it soon but he has a waiting list till July. I opted to wait till July. Whilst he was talking to me and asking me questions which my husband answered - that really annoys me especially as he answered wrongly! My husband interrupts and says to him " excuse me I hope you don't mind me saying but you have a bogie hanging from your nose" - The surgeon was very grateful and thanked him profusely - I on the other hand nearly died!
love Georgie xx
