I should write an update of my surgery. It went well, I had mastectomy with reconstruction with expander. Sentinel lymph node looked ok, so they didn't take out the other nodes. But of course I have to wait for my histologic report. I'll have an appointment with both surgeons tomorrow, but I believe the report won't be available yet. I am feeling well, a bit tired and find expander bearable. They already pumped 100 ml of fluid in it, so I don't look flat at all, which totally surprised me. All drains are out too. I've stayed a bit longer at the hospital because I was vomitting and the doctors didn't know whether it was from migraine (I had a big migraine attack on the morning of the surgery and was vomitting on the way to the surgery, it really sucked), from anesthesia or from painkillers I was getting. On day 5 I was finally feeling ok.
I can't help myself not to worry about the results and possible bad news. I'll update when something is new.
I was kinda away from computer and I'll catch up in the next day or two with news here. I hope you are all doing ok. I met a lot of women with the same diagnosis at the hospital and that made me not feeling so alone. I had you a lot in my thoughts, too.
Take care, Carmen
