Hi all, just checking in to see how everyone who had surgery is doing.
KMouse: so sorry to hear about the + lymph nodes. I hope next steps go okay and will check back to see.
I don't know if I feel abandoned by my surgeon, I understand it is the holidays but I don't feel like I really was as prepped for after in terms of some things. Like the emotional issues I've been having and the bra challenges. I wasn't given any info about that before hand and it's been okay but I have some pain - more like twinges and some shooting pain. From here, I can see that may be normal and also discussions with a friend who is an MD.
In general, I'm feeling worn out from dealing with this on top of the COVID quarantine restrictions for so many months. My husband didn't even go into the hospital with me because of his worry and risk and then yesterday at the store, I see a guy walking around blatantly without a mask. (I'm in Sacramento CA). It really pissed me off. I feel like I don't have the energy or positivity to face the next steps (radiation) even though I know intellectually I am fortunate. I tried to chat with my husband about this earlier; he wants to be positive which is fine but I feel really alone.
I do "see" via telemedicine a therapist every other week. I'm just feeling like no one gets it. Heck, I don't get it half the time. Sorry to be debby downer. It's been a year.
