Good Morning fellow mammals. Funny how man named an entire class of animals after boobs. I guess you're only hyper aware of boobs if you're a man or if you just lost one. They gave me a radical mastectomy--muscle, lymph nodes and all. We'll find out if there is or was any residual cancer in the breast after the biopsy in a few days and whether or not they got clear margins. I have a lovely and stylish tube sticking out of the side of my chest where I can watch blood and other fluid draining out of the tissue where my breast was. The three "fibroids" in my abdomen will be tested today via ultra sound in order to rule out a possible spread to my uterus--small chance that it is anything other than fibroids but we want to make sure.
Special thanks to my post op nurse Josette and to my room nurse, Kelly--you guys are awesome. Team Corrie was fabulous in all of its pink glory--thanks to everyone here and everywhere who wore their team corrie shirts! Also, thanks to everyone who flashed someone yesterday, your silliness is much appreciated (as I am sure the sight of your boobs were).
