(16-07-11) Today’s Surgery

Forgive typos and confusing statements; I am still waking up from the anaesthesia.

Surgery was at 11. I haven’t debriefed with my doctor yet, so I am not 100% sure how everything went. I *think* they opened me up, cleaned all around the expander, added a drain (remember those from my mastectomy? They’re baaaack!), and stitched me back up. They also drained 200 cc’s from both breasts; the right one needed less pressure and tightness, and I begged the doctor to keep both breasts as even as possible.

That’s all I have the energy to share right now…just wanted everyone to know that I made it through the surgery without any major complications.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Invasive Breast Cancer in October/November, 2015. This blog is my way to process my experience and allow my loved ones to have ongoing updates about my journey.
