Two Days After Surgery

Today marks two days since my surgery. In that time I've slept, watched a little TV, slept, played on the computer, slept and worked hard to stay comfortable. I never realized that the little movements I make with my arms and chest could be so painful. I took a shower this morning and washed my hair. That felt good. Bob helped me to remove my bandages and I took my first glimpse at my removed right breast area. It's strange to see myself this flat chested. I know in time this will change, but it's not very pretty to me at this moment.

Besides all that, Bob and I have been emptying my drains and Bob took the numbing IV out this morning. That lightened the load a bit. I'm having trouble finding words to explain all this. Maybe as time goes on and I'm not so loopey with Percocet. Have a great day everyone!


  1. Ah yes, the days of drugs. I sort of miss them!

    When I first saw myself I laughed. It looked like I had three udders. Fat, skin and the expander sticking out.

    It all looks pretty normal now.

    Stay the course with the drugs--try to "enjoy" being home and pampered if you can.

    EAT all you want too! You deserve it!
