I just had a double masectomy last Thursday and seemed to be recovering nicely. I went in yesterday for my pathology report and of course didn't get the news I'd hoped for. I will have to undergo another surgery on one of my breast next week to take additional skin off due to the cancer spreading along the skin tissue. This wasn't found until after the inital surgery. They also found the cancer in my lymph nodes only one out of five but now the doc states chemo will be desired. They will be taking the muscle and skin from my back to fill in the breast. It seems like every time I take one step forward for recovery I get hit with bad news about the cancer and seems to go back. The first surgery was hard enough, I just started showering and getting dressed by myself. Sorry ladies just having a pity party!!! I know I need to go and get it out of me and continue on with treatment...just having one of those days!
Love you all!!!
