Three weeks out from surgery and am still pretty sore and numb and generally uncomfortable.
And I feel pretty vulnerable out in public. Like, more than the usual sense of panic whilst among people. Gentle hugs and big thanks to girlfriends who’ve been getting me out of the house to ease back into circulation.
Am getting used to the complexities of this new body order. Went to the dentist yesterday, just in case there’s chemo. Might need a hysterectomy due the fact that the IUD currently treating uterine complex hyperplasia is a no-no for my type of breast cancer.
Physical therapy, tissue expansion, and radiation oncology consult tomorrow. Treatment plan should be mapped out next week.
