I thought I should write a quick something since the last time I posted I was throwing up the white flag and my ship was sinking, 1 boob and all. Well I am happy to be writing that my ship did not sink. It was quite a storm and we are down 1 breast, but we survived! I am now on the upswing and things are getting better everyday. I thought I would miss my boob terribly (I know, like it was a family member or some thing) but, I really don’t even know its gone. I thought I would wake up and feel the void on my chest and be saddened by it . Unless I look in the mirror my chest feels no different. For me that is a win!
I do still have pain but I am most positive it’s a result from this stupid drain. Any tube that starts on the inside of you, sticks out of your armpit is not a good time. I was told the drain would be out in 7-10 days after surgery but like how everything else has been going lately my drain has been in two weeks!! It is looking like it wont be able to come until Friday making it well over two weeks it has been with me. I will be happy to write about when its out and how great I feel after its gone.
Next up is decoding the pathology report and what it means moving forward.
