Check Your Boobs!



Recommended Posts

I had a difficult time after surgery as many know...however, I recently turned the poverbial VSG corner in the last few weeks...I can eat some foods now... get my Protein & fluids down without the constant nausea & pains...thank goodness/valuim,bentyil & zantac!

So I'm back to work fulltime, taking care of grandson even went on a Anniversary date with my husband to our favorite Chinese restaurant (PF Changs) had egg drop Soup & 2 shrimp steamed dumplings WITHOUT throwing up immediately in the restroom!!!

All this and I am wearing 10/12 super Cute jeans!! (OMG reallY???) It seemed like I could finally breath deep and get things done that I had put off...during the rather Orrible months since VSG.

So firstly, I had my regular mammogram that I had put off (6 months) last week...they called me back next day on friday and said can u come back today for a rescan...I knew with my mom dying of breast cancer that it might not be good..long story short they said I have what looks like stage 1 breast cancer. I go back tomorrow for a lumpectomy and will find out within 24 hours if they are right.

I say all this to remind you ladies DO NOT put of something so damn important...get those boobs checked regularly and ON TIME...please!!

Strangely I am pretty calm...(not hubby! bless) I figure if it is...then I will fight it, in the mean time I am reading everything I can about what's in store and trying to stay positive.

Hugs to you all!

PLEASE #CHECK YOUR BOOBS!!!!

Sending a prayer to you tonight! Stay strong, my mil had breast cancer in both breasts same spot ....they called it mirroring. Well she has been cancer free for 5 years now!

I actually had a mammogram in may and they found 2 lumps but since I'm only 30 they would do a rescan in 6 months so in November I go back!

I know it's scary but god is with you every step!

God bless

So sorry you have to deal with this. My mom was diagnosed at age 60, so it freaks me out. I'll be 60 in Oct.

My mom died at age 82 and she was cancer free for years and years.

Sending prayers and healing thoughts your way!

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.
