I had quite a bit of pain after my mastectomy. It really hurt to move and I don't think anyone believed me. But when the drains came out, all the pain disappeared. It was such a relief. Must have been pressing on a nerve or something.
Wonder how Maggie is ...

Interesting reading but I just can't imagine it myself.
I hope your mastectomy goes very well. I'm sure it will. It's not as bad as I thought it would be, and most of my discomfort came from the expanders I had inserted.
I wish you a speedy recovery.

I had my op done at SJOG Subi, so don't know much about Royal Perth. I'm sure everything will go well for you.
The support group is at the BCF headquarters. When you start feeling better pm me and maybe we can arange for you to come to one. I'm sure you will enjoy it. We had a lady there a few weeks ago who had her mastectomy the day before! She was doing really well but brought her hubbie with her in case she wanted to leave early. She stayed the full two hours though. Fantastic.
