Wow that was an experience, It was funny cause I didn't remember much that happened before my mastectomy last time. That gosh darn lorazipan works wonders. But this time I didn't take anything ... I was ready for this. I had the operating team laughing because I pretty much jump up on the table before they were ready for me..lol Then afterwards ugggggggggg.. The pain was bad. it was getting close to labor pains. I started to cry it was so bad. I have a high pain threshold from dealing with the fibromyalgia. That didn't make any difference I was hurting.. They kept giving me pain meds then they gave me liquid Tylenol. That stuff works. I'm on percocet now. I seem to be in constant pain but not as bad as earlier.. It's like a burning sensation on the left side of my chest. I keep being told the results are worth it.. HMMMMMM they better be nice...lol this mess hurts.
The good thing is I am able to move around better today.. got all that pain meds and anesthesia from the hospital out of my system. My head doesn't feel fuzzy anymore. Now don't get me wrong I am so ever thankful for being able to have this surgery. There are so many women that can't have reconstruction surgery for one reason or another. I have read the stories of my cancer friends and they seem to be going thru so much more than me. I pray for them everyday. These are some tough women. They make my journey look like a walk in the park. They still support and encourage me when needed.
I am looking forward to healing so I can hold my baby Dylan again. I kept kissing on him yesterday morning. He was looking at me like he knew why. I can't wait until I am able to tale him to the pool. My big boy Jay has been such a blessing I really can't imagine life with out him. Nay couldn't come down because it was her first day on the job. Last but definitely not least my hubby... he even went without food because I couldn't eat. I love him so so much..
So now I focus on healing and moving. Still got stuff to pack. I'm going to more of a director than anything else. What a busy week we have.
