    Not a question.....just venting

    Hi everyone, well it's almost time for me to get my lump/node surgery (March 11). I know I will be stressed beyond the normal "chocolate-relief". If today is any indication of what my weekend, will be, II will be a nervous wreck/junk fooded out by Sunday....began breakfast with rocky road ice cream, lunch was ho-hos,. dinner: popcorn.....I know I shouldn't be eating all this junk, all this downed with HOT WATER. I am following advice I recieved here on this site and going out of town for the weekend so I know I won't be on the computer for a while. Everyone have a wonderful weekend and as always be as strong as you've been. Will give an update as soon as I am able to.

      Have fun getting away. I like when it can be so much fun that you can string along moments that you don't have these worries hanging over your head. You are almost there - just a few days more to go. This is a huge step to get behind you.

      It's good to get away and have a change of scene especially when you are perseverating so much. I think your food binges are normal, all things considered. Btw, popcorn, if it's not dripping with butter and salt is not a bad food, it's good. It's high in fiber. Look at the nutritional info on the brands you buy. Get a lowfat, low in salt brand.

      Best of luck to you,

      Hi again little_fut. I had my surgery Feb 20 -- lumpectomy on left side - lymph node section on L side - and a biopsy on rt side to clear out remainder of benign cyst found in MRI biopsy. I still have a little lump under armpit that is small edema -- will reabsorb according to Dr -- but I feel great and am going back to tennis next week. I know it is hard but really count your blessings -- your surgery is very minor and you will be up and around in a few days. Also I recommend doing your "google" research and lots of reading before you decide on any other courses of trtmnt.

      Enjoy your week-end. One or two days of comfort eating isn't a big deal. Good luck Monday.

      Hi, little_fut. Have a *good* weekend. I remember the anxiety and tension before my surgeries. Breathe - deeply and often. Distractions are good, too. Like SMT4 said - You got this! You really do. And haven't you heard? Chocolate is good for you. ; ) I'm thinking of you and look forward to hearing how it went.

      Good for you. When else will you have opportunity to eat what you want without guilt. My chemo days consisted of IHOP Swedish crepes, followed by an afternoon snack giant sundae from Baskin Robbins. Sometimes I finished the day off with a bag of kettle corn. (Yes, I was lucky - chemo did not make me sick to my stomach). I know I ate better on other days, but you do what you have to do to get through this. All will be well.
