Thanks for the reply. I guess i was expecting excruciating pain but to hear it's not quite that bad is good news. My biggest fear in all this is not being able to care for my girls.

I'm due to have a mastectomy soon and I'm nervous (obviously). I know what to expect to the point of having my breast tissue removed and replaced with a "tissue filler", but what should I expect recovery wise. What will the pain be like and how will it affect my day to day activities. I don't mean like running off to play tennis but I have 3 girls (under the age of 6.. 1 a 21 week old baby). How long will I not be able to hold my child properly for??
Lots of questions and worries are starting to creep in, I know I can speak with my Macmillan nurse but If anyone could give me a bit of insight I'd be happier and ready when it comes to booby off day!
Thanks in advance
