Tomorrow I have port placement. I'm pretty anxious, and I have some specific questions if anyone can help?
First - how soon after the surgery can you shower/wash hair? I assume you aren't allowed to get the incisions wet for some time. Not that that really matters I soon wont have any hair. But I'm keeping it as long as I can for some stupid reason.
Second - once it's healed, how obvious will it be? I love to wear strappy sundresses (even though I'm probably too old for that anyway) - but should I just bundle them all up now and give them away?
I'm feeling so low. Both boobs scarred up from cancer twice now on opposite sides, hysterectomy and oophorectomy after tamoxifen caused problems after first round of bc, and now once again soon to be bald, and then grey for ages, and months of feeling sick and ill, and on top of that am I going to be wearing high neck modesty clothing for the rest of my life?
I'm beginning to wonder what the point of all this is.
Hint - I am hoping someone will say something optimistic - and definitely keep on with those dresses.
