My fingers are crossed for both you ladies that you will be able to avoid chemo. Having said that, if you do find out that you need it, head over to the chemo treatment board because there are some strong warrier chemo survivors over there!

Thanks Julie! My father left on Sunday and we had a really nice week together. Now it's time to get back to some sort of normality, whatever that means.

Thanks Julie. Not looking forward to it but want it out of the way. II will get my results on 12th December. I have been told I will have a drain in for approx 5 days to avoid fluid build up. Did you not have a drain. I am trying to work out how I will sleep with the drain in without moving around and pulling it out. I am always worrying abougt the next step before it arrives! Would be fantastic to avoid chemo wouldnt it?

Hi Julie! Another big step successfully taken! Re white coat syndrome - no, still can’t use home machine 😖. I always cheerfully tell whoever is doing my BP that it will be high so sometimes it’s not as bad as they were expecting! It did occur to me that perhaps I actually do have really high blood pressure - but I guess that would have shown up during my ops. Otherwise I just ignore it and hope it will go away! Not very helpful! Debbie xx

Great to hear that you are the other side of your op and WOW what a fabulous nursing team you had, your consultant is awesome to ensure all of that happened to make sure you did not have to worry about your white coat syndrome.
Make sure you get plenty of rest now
Sending you hugs
