I went for my yearly physical and my doctor said we should do a mammogram since it had been 3 years. Away I go and they found a mass. A biopsy was quickly set up and a week later I was told I had breast cancer. Surgery was scheduled for a few weeks later and I am now home resting. I feel not too bad. A 2 cm tumor and 2 lymph nodes taken out.
I do find myself bursting into tears as I try my hardest to stay positive. I know chemo will be scheduled soon and all the unknowns are upsetting.
The incision under the arm is achy and sore. I am doing my stretches so I'm sure the location is getting too much movement.
The steri strips are starting to loosen and are ready to fall off after 6 days. Should I worry? Is there anything recommended to put on the incision as it heals? I am 11 days away from my next doctor appt and thought I would start here first with my questions :)
Thank you for all the support and understanding when I ask the silly questions!
