Today was the first day I had a full, head-on look at the site of my mastectomy. It wasn’t as bad as I thought. it’s only partially inflated, and that’s pretty much all it looks like- a half inflated boob. Again, I was expecting this to be somewhat upsetting, and it wasn’t, at all.
Things seem to be progressing just fine- the drainage is tapering off. I’m still pretty sore, and at times it feels worse than others, but it’s not unmanageable. My butt is sore from sitting/laying more than I’m used to. But, I did manage to tag along while Will walked the dogs last night. So yes, I’m up and moving about.
Can you even tell which side they operated on? This photo is deceptive.
