Done with Surgery

Was out of there by 11:30 am, off to lunch, drugstore.  Kids/grandkids came over, took dog for a walk.  Had virtually no pain. The radioactive shot thing, which I was anticipating to hurt like hell, didn't.

I can't tell you how many caretakers I had in the hospital.  Every one of them was a gem.  I found out later that the surgical nurse packed a surgical hat (with bunnies & flowers) in my bag.

Doc took 2 nodes.  Hubby said doc told him that was because 2nd node was so close to sentinal node.  I will see surgeon Wednesday for path report.

Thanks for all the coffee and goodies.

Glad your surgical procedure is over and behind you.  Anticipating something going hurt often doesn't.  I have had a lot of radiactive dye in procedures and never found them painful.

Best wishes to you,

I never had any unusual procedures either.  I hope your recovery is swift and sure.   Be sure t do your exercises, eat well, and get plenty of rest.  Let others take care of you now.
