Mastectomy - pooky1

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on December 14, 2011 View this journey (7 Experiences)

I had never been so terrified in my whole life. I had never had any type of surgery. I was told a lumpectomy was NOT for me. The only way to remove the cancer was to remove the entire breast. I was devistated. I was so numb to the fact, I had no tears to shed. My surgery was scheduled for 6am and the night before I could not even sleep thinking about this awful terrible thing that was about to happen to me.
Upon my arrival to surgery I had a number of medical departments to report to...blood pressure checks, blood tests, dye injection, etc... Going into surgery was a total nightmare for me. Surgery went well for me. After waking up in recovery and told that it was over,. my immediate reaction was to get dressed and go home. So much for that.
