Home from surgery Ann's staying positive

I had surgery yesterday with wide lobal excision and sentinal node biopsy. No nodes removed. I am home in less than 24hrs. The amount removed was the size of an orange. Full results next week. Doing well feeling strong but weary. Just the next waiting game for the full results.  Need to keep myself positive. I am in awe of all the beautiful women who have gone through this before me.

    Well done, praying for good results for next week.  Take good care of yourself and a little bit of pampering is in order! :)

    While we are out of hospital so fast that doesn’t mean we have had insignificant surgery! Well done on that count, look after you, and keep busy, find something in every day you can feel good about.

    Lots of hugs and positives coming your way

    It is absolutely significant surgery Tinks. The amount removed from my right breast is the size of an orange. It is so confronting to look at myself in the mirror. I will need to balance myself up eventually. Trying to keep busy.

    Hi @Cath62 - I hope you've continued to recover well - wishing you all the best with your results.  Then you'll have a 'game plan' & know what's ahead

    Take care xx
