Today I see my family doc for a pre-op physical and then go for mammogram, EKG, and lab tests.

Saw my surgeon on Monday.

Hi!

Congrats on your surgery and you sound like you are doing well!! WooHoo!! What do you think? Notice a big difference yet? Can't wait to hear from you as you start healing and they take shape and your back and neck start feeling better...beware though...all of a sudden you will see your stomach, which to some of us had been a shock - LOL!!! Anyway, I am so happy for you that is over and you are now on the road to recovery and a new, happier you! Keep in touch and remember to listen to your body and don't over do it!!

Wow you sound great!! So happy for you!! So glad for you that have people around you to check on you and pamper you a bit. Always nice! The low back pain will be the next thing...see how that is. Only 2 1/2 pounds, but still I am sure it will make a big difference. I am sure the bleeding will slow and or stop soon. Just take it easy. Wait to you can actually put on a regular sized pretty bra. Whether you have someone who will see the bra, knowing that finally you can wear one off the rack that isn't institution white, is so amazing... :))
Happy healing!!

Actually, after the first few days ... when I had a bit of help and was still running on pre-surg energy ... I haven't felt nearly as good.

Just wanted to check in and see how you are doing? Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? I hope you are feeling better and were able to enjoy the feast! And didn't have to do much of the cooking...LOL!
Has the swelling gone down? I know, lots of questions, but I just wanted to check in on you and hoping that you are doing better and feeling good. Let us know!!

Nancy :)
