I made it through the surgery! I was still nervous til they knocked me out but I just kept thinking of all of you that were there with me in spirit and knowing that you were all rooting and praying for me and that sent a wave of calm over me when I got anxious. It took 1hr and 45 min to place the wires. The radiologist replaced them a couple times. My back hurt having to lean forward worse than my breast being squeezed for that long. The area removed ended up being about three to four cm in length. The area was bigger than originally estimated but the radiologist wanted to make sure to get all the calcifications. As most of you know I have to wait until Monday or Tues for pathology report. I am glad that I did not wait til after Christmas to have the surgery. I feel pretty good but that is probably due to the vicodin. Thanks again to all of you for keeping me sane and thinking of me today.
