Since my last post, I had the second phase of my surgery on Feb. 20. It's funny: I felt so great the day after my surgery that I talked my doctors into letting me go home, even though my Hgb. was low. A week later, I felt like I had to drag myself to get to the doctors' offices for follow-up appointments.
The breast surgeon was pleased with my progress and said I would not need to come back again, although I do need to go for genetic counseling. Then I went to the plastic surgeon, and that was terrific, because I got those stinkin' JP drains pulled. To sleep in my own bed tonight...sweet bliss!
I have to go back to see him again next Friday, as well as get some blood work.
As always, I am eternally grateful to my parents for making the trip to FCCC; it's a long drive but well worth it.
