So pleased that you don't have to go back into hospital Alex and I hope your infection continues to get better xx
Great news that you are over the op and OK !! It all sounds wonderful at your unit, wish we had something like that here, just talking with ladies who've come through this is helpful, and with a pampering session as well, wow !
Like you, I'm sick after anaesthetic, it's really unpleasant when you are already sore, yuk..and unfortunately I can't tolerate morphine either, as that makes me hooch as well...;( - luckily I was OK with just paracetamol...the nerve block they'd given me during the op was very effective!!
Fingers crossed for your results, and keep on with the recovery !!
Hi Ladies - well my surgery seemed to go well yesterday, i was sick from the anaesthetic, which wasnt good but not unusual and I've been feeling extremely tired today and sleeping quite a lot.
I haven't been able to bring myself to look at it yet - but the BCN had a look and said the reconstruction has given me a breast shape already, so I will have appointments to have it inflated over time.
Was in some pain through the night but a couple of doses of liquid morphine done the trick.😉.
At the breast cancer unit at our hospital we have a special pamper suite - so I had my hair trimmed and washed and a blow dry and then my nails done - its the Marina Dalglish Centre and all the volunteers are ladies who have had breast cancer and they give up thier time to help the like's of me - it was great and they are all so lovely and positive, and to just be able to talk about it all with a group who have been through it has really helped me - I'm very lucky.
I have just the one drain and the distric nurse will call tomorrow to check the wound and the drain, then one of the BCN's will call the day after - someone will home visit every day until the drain is removed.
Now just the agonising wait for the pathology results - next appointment 10th October.
Looking forward to being back in my own bed tonight.
Hope everone else is doing OK.🎗❤👍
