    Lumpectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Didn't know what to expect. went to sleep with the doctor telling me to expect to have the breast remove but would only take what was necessary to keep me liiking like the same woman. Because of the size of the tumor might not can have only a lumpectomy. But woke up behind surgery and was happy to know that I still had my breast. Didn't like the same day surgery and I had to go home but the doctor decided to keep me over night and I was glad of that because my husband would not have been able to handle me I believe. Having any kind of cancer surgery is devastating to deal with. But with prayer and great family and friends I managed to do okay at firtst until I got an infection at the surgery sight from going home with no antibiotics, which were given to me in the hospital but not sent home with it.

    Chemo brain

    Side Effects

    I can hardly write sometimes and I have to stop and think about what I am doing. In the middle of talking about something I get a brain freeze and can't remember what I am talking about. But I am thankful to be cured of cancer and I thank God for life and my family and friends for their understanding,
