I am scheduled for surgery on December 21. I'm hoping other December surgeries will post here so we can gain from each other's experiences with planning and recuperating. I know this holiday was going to be different anyway, but having surgery during the holidays and with a surge of COVID cases is making me somewhat more anxious..

I am having a unilateral mastectomy with sentinel node biopsy and tissue expander placement. I'm still debating what I will do going forward, implant or DIEP flap. The PS said I have time to decide. I am determined to heal quickly and help my daughter with her first child due the end of January. We are so excited for her (it's a girl!)arrival!

Thanks AB45......and all supporting everyone of us! We all have a novel of our lives, experiences and thoughts! Even if any of us have an event for ourselves or those we know takes us beyond what we know....there is always hope for beyond. How we live our lives breathes HOPE and POWER into our future generations! Do not ever stop infusing that breath into the world, people, family, desires and future!

It does not matter if we are destined to a short landing path or long....EVERY moment, thought and keystroke can be a breath into someone or ANYTHING else! WE ALL matter!
