    Surgery

    Well, I’m all done with chemo and I’m so glad that my tumors are much smaller. I was just given my surgery date of June 10th. In which I will be getting a single mastectomy. I’m feeling a little nervous but very optimistic..

      Good! Read the blogs about what you need to get ready for surgery. I know they suggest button down the front shirts because you may not be able to lift your arm to put good t shirt on. Good luck.

      It is such good news that you have responded well to chemotherapy. I thought recovering from surgery was a piece of cake compared to going through chemo! Please do keep us posted on your progress.

      I'm with MarcieB! After the most horrendous 6 months of dose-dense chemo - I insisted on taking 5 weeks to recover before I did surgery. I had a lumpectomy and complete axilla dissection, and the healing from that was 'a piece of cake' even with the drain. I'm so glad your tumors shrunk! You'll do fine with surgery - wishing for the best!
