Thanks to everyone for your well wishes, it really does help.
I am back from my 5th trip to Toronto since Sept. 21. It is so hard to be away from my kids this much, not to mention how I hate having to impose on people to help with childcare arrangements. But we all have had to to what we have to do, right.
I had the surgery on Friday, which was a really long day. I was told to be at hospital at 7:30am, where I was to have a mammogram wire localization. This didn't make sense to me since they were only able to see this on MRI. As it was, once I got there I was told they would be doing a MRI guided wire localization, but not until 9:30 am with surgey at 1:45. I was in and out of the MRI for approx. 2 hours as they tried to properly place the wire. It was very, very difficult trying to lay perfectly still for that lenght of time, but they finally did get it.
I ended up getting into surgery a little early as they were ahead of schedule, and apparently it took approx. 1 1/2 hours. Of course I don't remember any of it, but this is what I was told. They gave me a percocette as soon as I woke up, but I haven't taken anything since then. It is a little sore, but bearable. I don't really like the way I feel on the pain meds. Now I just wish there was some way to speed up the waiting for the results. The pain I can handle, the waiting is more difficult. They told me it could be up to 3 weeks to get the results, which seems absolutely ridiculous to me, I know they can be done as quickly as a few days. They obvisously have no idea, how excructiatingly painfull the waiting is. Also they said I will have to come back to get the results, they will not give them over the phone. So it looks as though I will be making yet another trip in the very near future.
Thanks again for all the support, I don't know what I would do without the support from here.
