Well I am back at home. My surgery went really well and I was released on Wednesday afternoon. I am still in a little bit of pain but it is controllable. Right now I have two drains that are very uncomfortable. They come out from my rib area and are stitched in place. They are constantly pulling which causes a little bit of pain. Hopefully I can get them removed soon!! I think that would make it less painful. Also during surgery my doctor decided to remove a few of my lymph nodes. The agreement was the doctor would take a look and feel the nodes and decide if it was necessary to remove them. She said she couldn’t be 100% sure they didn’t have cancer in them so they were removed. I guess this makes recovery a little bit more painful. I am having to do arm exercises which are very hard. The good news is now I can raise my arm above my head. The muscles are very sore and it fells like I am stretching them out. Each day I am feeling better and I am starting to feel good about the surgery. I go to my doctor on Tuesday so hopefully she can give me pathology reports and we can decide if radiation is a must. Yesterday was the first day back to working out. Well actually I walked very slowly around the top track at the Y. It’s hard to walk fast with the drains and my stomach incisions but after I walked I felt better. Thanks so much for all the prayers. It made going though this easier. I know God was with the surgeons as they worked.
