I’m recovering pretty well from the surgery. My friends have been taking care of me. They are great.

I’m still a bit out of it from all the drugs, so I apologize if this post doesn’t make sense.

The double mastectomy was a success. No complications. I have to wait a week to find out the results of the lymph node biopsies. My surgeon sounded optimistic about it, and doesn’t seem to think it has spread. I know I’ll need chemo regardless, but maybe I can get out of radiation. I hope so.

I have my expanders in, but she didn’t fill them very much. She wants to give me time to heal. I should get my first fill in a few weeks.

When I woke up, I was in the worst pain of my life, and that is the closest I have come to freaking out. Luckily, they pumped me full of drugs and I started to relax.

The surgical bra sucks. It’s very uncomfortable. Also, I’m really itchy from all the drugs and the incisions.

I found out that I don’t have the breast cancer gene(s), which is great because it means i get to keep my ovaries. That was a huge relief.

I have more I want to say, but my head feels foggy, and I can’t think properly.

I’m glad to be home.

P.S. I hate these drains so much. I have 4 of them. Ugh.
