Just to let you all know my surgery is over.
Got home today with my drain still in have to record how much is in it in morning and ring BCN. Will also be given a date to replace dressing.
Glad to be home just tired .
Thank you for your prayers.
Hugs for all
Hi there great to hear your home its always easier to recoup at home and get in your own bed. Hope youre recovering well, best wishes Vanessa x
Hi VanessaThank you for your well wishes so glad to be home. Still very tired and bit sore but, early days. My surgeon was able to say my nipple although after BCN was changing dressing yesterday and noticed it was very red. So surgeon came from theatre to check it. Have to continue with my antibiotic and if it gets worse possibility it will have to be removed. Staying positive though and i cannot odds it if that does happen. So Tuesday will tell the outcome
Best wishes to you too
Love and hugs
I was back with my Surgeon and BCN today. Drain has to stay too much coming out of it and Surgeon still not happy with redness, so have to continue with antibiotic . Have to go back on Friday to get drain taken away as dont like to keep it in longer than two weeks . Surgeon also to check redness and if no change to decide what happens next.
I hope that you are doing as well as can be expected and enjoying the sun.
Hi Angela I'd been wondering how you were getting on, not great news but here's hoping the antibiotics for longer will reduce infection.At least you are still in the comfort of your own home and able to recoup better, best wishes you get better results really soon.Vanessa x
Thank you for your message and best wishes.
Definitely better off at home in your own surroundings, you get fed up in the hospital and want your own bed.
Im positive all will work out ok, i say what will be will be. If i didn't have my faith i think my attitude would be different. I think will all have something that helps us to stay strong.
I go on Friday to get it checked again and my pathology results so i reckon Friday is going to be a good day.
Love and Hugs
Was with my surgeon on Friday my pathology results were negative so fabulous news. Still have the pico dressing on battery pack as still red. Have yo continue taking antibiotic and go back on Tuesday.
Has this happened anyone else? Its just im feeling tired and under the weather and this is day 17.
Be grateful for any information or advice.
Love and Hugs
