I don’t care what type of surgery you are having…it sucks. You will be in pain, they will stick you with needles… and at some point you will be brought to tears. Guaranteed.
Today has been a lond day. It started off with no sleep last night. Then, I went to the hospital and was admitted…they immediately drew blood.. big fun. Then it’s IV time. On the 4th try they finally got it and I had tears rolling down my cheeks at this point.
I have bad veins.. can’t blame them, just my stupid body revolting on me yet again.
Now we are prepping for surgery. I’m all marked up and ready to go. My port is coming out and he is also cutting off the scar to make a new cleaner one. TT is going bye bye (refer to earlier posts;) my other breast just needed to be less “pointy” and then on the radical mastectomy side a mass of skin was removed that was left over. So…. just a bunch of fun was had by all
I woke up in agonizing pain, like usual and couldn’t get it under control. I was told by 3 different people that maybe I should “stay the night to receive meds.”
No way! I wasn’t staying. So, I took my pills and relaxed…. and eventually was ready to roll!
So, now I am home in bed with ice packs on my chest Lets hope the medicine works… because I still have a 5 years party to finish up, and a Doctors appt. Friday with a doctor about my leg pain (chemo)
Thanks for all the prayers, lots of love!
