I am now home from hospital and apart from feeling like I've been hit by a lorry I am doing well & just taking paracetamol for pain relief. I seem to have a lovely flat tummy & my new boobs seem to be ok (I opted for a B cup as this is what I was before children & I prefer smaller boobies lol!) 

i would just like to say a BiG thank you & give you all (gentle) hugs for your support it really means a lot :))) 

now onwards & upwards...................

So glad to hear you are on the mend! I found my mastectomy to be a lot easier than the debulking surgery for ovarian....hope you will experience that too.

All the very best,
