Happy to say I’ve had my surgery and I’m OK. It went very well, I thought. Though, when I saw the word ‘Partial Mastectomy‘ on my paperwork, it sent me for a loop.
What a word.
They ended up taking more tissue than expected…as it turned out there was an infection and more than one cyst. They took the ducts too.
I’m all bandaged up with clear tape and am pleasantly surprised that, so far, I’m not in any pain, at all. I’m taking antibiotics for the infection, for a week. Have a pain killer prescription as well but haven’t had to fill it, at least not yet.
I’m sleeping a lot. Dreaming a lot. Knitting a lot. Kind of emotional. I wonder if it’s normal to be a little hormonal after something like this?
Then again, what is this ‘normal’?
I hope this is the end of it. May the infection clear and the healing go easy.
Thanks for your support, Samm and Joansie. I appreciated it, a lot!
