After the Dance

Surgery went fine.  One lymph node and some extra tissue taken in addition to the breast tissue.  Lymph node was clear.  Will get other biopsy results this Thursday (Nov. 5); keep your fingers crossed for clear margins!

I'm doing much better than I expected although I had increasing pain until Monday, when the drain was removed. Having it removed felt a lot like having skin pulled off (at least as I imagine that would feel) -- burning pain for several minutes -- I guess the tissue was starting to heal around it and my body didn't want to let go.  Ouch!  But the incisions are only tender, not painful, and healing well.

Fatigue is hitting me again but I plan to go back for a day of work, a day off (appointments instead on Thursday), and then one more day of work before the weekend.

Neuropathy is noticably better (yay!), taste buds still refuse to like fat (no cheese -- sheez!) but are otherwise doing better as well.

Wish me luck for the biopsy results, and thank you for the email, phone calls, etc.  Y'all hold me up!
