There and Back Again
Swings and Roundabouts.
The lumpectomy was almost a month ago. Two weeks ago I went back down to Perth for the results.
Good news - the 2 lymph nodes removed were clear. So no radiation treatment.
Bad news - The wide margin wasn’t wide enough. There is still a couple of mm of cancerous tissue left.
I’m small breasted so there is not enough breast tissue left to do a second breast conservation. So I’m booked in for a mastectomy this week. I fly back down Tuesday evening for surgery Wednesday morning. Will stay down there 10 days so I don’t have to travel there and back with the drain.
On the 2nd of October I see the surgeon to have the drain removed and find out if I require chemo on top of the endocrine treatment.
I’m sick of travelling. I’m sick of having new things to manage : I’ve developed cording in my left armpit.
In the short space of 6 weeks I’ve gone from being very fit and healthy to worrying about getting scratches on my arm.
I was sick as a dog for 12 hours after surgery. So not looking forward to recovery on Wednesday.
Very up and down the past week or so waiting for the next surgery. Trying my best not to get too low but grrr.
Would give anything to smash plates and scream
