I was thinking removing the tissue expander to stop the reconstruction process would be a breeze. In and out on the same day; using only tylenol etc.
HOLY HELL. I’ve had to get up every 6 hours to stay on top of the pain and I’m really shocked at how painful this is having needed a general Anestesia, coming home drains in my body (again) and wandering around to make breakfast for myself so I can take my meds.
On a good note I will be back to skating FULLY including scrimmages within 2- 3 weeks.
Another great thing about this is I’ll be healed faster so I can get an MRI on the other side sooner than if I’d been able to keep the reconstruction process going. The peace of mind that the “undetectable cancer found during the mastectomy that can’t bee detected on a mammogram” isn’t on the other side.
I’m thrilled that my daughter Jessica aka Miss Fortune is coming into town today until Sunday Evening. She is here for a wedding; and I don’t think that care taking care of MOM is in the plans (That’s ok, Roggie will be off work the next two days) but I do hope to wrangle her ass to lead a derby clinic for my skaters on Friday night or Saturday morning. This, of course is all depending on the wedding goings on; but whatever the case is I get to see my girl who lives so far away.
I am still REALLY excited and happy to move forward once and for all and can opt for doing the reconstruction in the future. My guess is that I won’t be interested because I don’t feel at ALL like I’d want to go through that again.
I get to come back and skate!!! Soon!! Woo Hoo!!
