Recuperating

The procedures went well and I am recuperating at home. I had major shoulder/arm pain the first few days. The doctors said that it's very common because they pumped a lot of air into me and it could get stuck. Fortunately, most of the pain is gone & I'm just left with a very bloated stomach. I'll go back to the plastic surgeon this week and the gynecological surgeon the following week. The hardest part is going to be not driving for 2 weeks, but I'm grateful that Luke is now driving & can help out. I am beyond thrilled to have everything behind me. For the next 4 1/2 years, I'll have routine follow-ups with my oncologist & breast surgeon. They are amazing women & hopefully they will have only good news for me. I will continue to shine my little light & hope to encourage others with health issues to never give up!
