Hi Billy, don't worry, the Diaz was only 2mg and just to help me cope with hospital, as I get very scared in hospitals, no need since. Just been for a walk and having a cuppa. Hope you are having a good day too.

Hi VPlum  ...

Well just tried to accept your friend request.. it won't let me .. I've had this problem before .. I will try again later ... really sorry .. hopefully it's just a blip again ... so glad you took something leading up .. and after your the same as me, just stopped ... you got the hard bit over .. got that little uninvited guest out .. and don't worry if you get up and down days .. it's all the stress you brain has been under ...

Here's to kicking cancers ass....

Hi tonid, hope you don't mind me asking what's wrong with hubby, there's a good chance someone on forum can talk to him (same symptoms) being on your own is not nice, best wishes.

Hi Chrissy, great advice as always, been really up since op and then big crash, to be expected really, dressings came off and needless to say you then have to adjust to the new-shape you, less of you than before. But of course the important thing is the gremlin is no longer in residence. Fantastically neat incisions and no pain which is great. To my shame I'm writing this in bed at 5 in the afternoon, but about to get up and have a potter around. V

Hi there ..

I know it can feel traumatic seeing your different shape .. but you know I look at it like my lovely surgeon took my boob ... but gave me something far more precious... time ... and if that's the price to pay... I can live with that .. 

I was dreading looking at mine the first time .. but thinking that really helped me .. and now 2 years on ... I look down at the scar where my right boob used to be.. and to me.. it reminds me of the journey I've been on .. and not to take a day for granted ... 

Well look after yourself .. and I'll never say this enough .. listen to your body . ... we heal when we sleep .. take those baby steps ... and make the most of this time to be able to just chill .. it doesn't come very often ... we rush through life at a rate of knots ... so now it's time to sit back .. watch t.v .. read .. and don't feel guilty ... keep an eye on your scar .. I had to have mine drained twice ... I thought my boob was growing back a few weeks after ... but it was just fluid ... 

All my granddaughter ... 5 at the time  ... wanted to know .. was how I was going to feed babies now .. as she knew the Dr took my boob ... it still makes me chuckle ... Chrissie xx

Hi Chrissey, absolutely agree that what you see represents the surgeons skill in saving your life. As the saying goes you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. Also you're completely right that it's time to rest to recover from the stress between diagnosis and treatment starting. Completely conked out today, but thats ok and "alliowed" .I consider myself truly blessed and far far luckier than some. This site is a godsend also. X

Hi Billy, I'm fine. Lots of people coming and going, even getting a visit from the new vicar this morning! Later I'm being 'taken' to Marks & Spencers, my first trip out in a week, yipee. Think I'll be off work for quite some time, as obviously the op was only Stage 1, following docs advice that at least 8 weeks for this stage, could be 6 months in total. Luckily I will be on full pay so no pressure to go back sooner than is sensible. You have a nice day . V
