This time last week I was still in the operating theatre having my Ooporectomy. A week has gone by and I don't regret it for a moment. It was the right thing to do and now I have the rest of my life to look forward to with no cancer baggage weighing me down in the form of monthly Zolodex injections.
This picture was taken a couple of days after the surgery. This is the op site on my right side, there is a smaller one on my left and one inside my naval.
The stitches are disolveable so no worries there about having them taken out.
The stitches are starting to break up now and I will be glad when they have gone because the op sites are sore. It's not too bad really its just that I worry about infection.
My lumpectomies and nodal sweep operations were far more painful than this op so I am hoping to be back in some sort of action in a week.
So the future for me is bright! No more Zolodex injections! (note to self: must phone the district nurse to let her know!).
I am looking forward to getting back into work, getting my dog grooming business up and running again.
