Lovely to hear from you, though I feel quite well in myself, I will admit, this op has taken more out of me than the first. They didn't have much choice of sandwichs, when it was my turn, whether it was because that I was the last patient to go home, but it was enjoyable. I don't mind fasting normaly, but I do think that was a bit too long for me. Even the nurse said I should have been allowed to drink water until 11am, but the surgeon was hoping to slot me in earlier. But due to a patient who is on chemo, it caused a few problems. Bless her! I am off to my daug's this afternoon for six days, so hopefully I will feel the joys of spring in my body or perhaps winter blues with putting the heating on for a couple of hours to take the chill off the room. I thought this was summer! Hope you are relaxing and enjoying your few days away. Good luck for your results which I believe is Tuesday. Will catch up with you when I get back, I try not to use the computer whilst I'm away.
Love Peggyxx and a great big hug for your results.

Sorry I can't seem to find the posts which everyone put messages on the forum for me on the 8th. Well had 2nd op for margins yesterday, it was a long day, fasting from eating & drinking (midnight & 6.30am) and I didn't go down to theatre until gone 4pm, so was absolutely hungry & thoroughly pissed, they could hear from tummy noises. Told them I could eat a good plate of Fish & Chips. Surgery seem to go well,slight discomfort this time, finally got home at 9pm last night so keeping my fingers crossed that I can move on to the next stage. On the humour side, I still need to get off the trolley quite quick for the usual wee Mairanne, couldn't cross my legs any longer, so perhaps I need some of them old fashion sugar bags (pantie lou's with the elastic around the bottom) which some us worn in our younger days.
Hospital & staff were fantastic again, the NHS trust want to down grade and make patients travel even more. We need to keep our hospitals more local to make life easier for patients & families at these crucial times. Had my MOAN!
Love to all the lovely ladies that have been supporting me.
