Today I woke up feeling pretty good. The last two nights have been really rough. I start feeling nauseous and then start shaking. Hurting really bad.
Last night I had a fever which was scary. My parents helped me into bed and I just laid there shaking until I guess the pain pill kicked in and helped lower my temperature.
I’m writing this blog to show positivity and to help other women get checked. If I left out the bad stuff it wouldn’t be fair.
This is no walk in the park. It hurts. I have moments I just cry because it hurts. Or because I’m numb. I literally can’t feel my breasts. Under my arm is numb. When I scratch it I can’t feel it. All of this SUCKS. But even though I go through these feelings, I am still grateful. Grateful that my nurse found the cancer. Grateful God gave me the courage to decide on a double mastectomy.
It’s not fun. But it gets better every day.
I’m ready to get these drains out so I can take a proper shower!
Here is a really pretty picture of me this morning. You’re welcome. Hahaha!
The shiny thing on my chest is kinda like Saran Wrap only tape version.
My incisions are healing wonderfully! My doctors rock. And I’m not flat chested. They actually left me with some boobs thanks to the tissue expander above the muscle. Shout out Dr Unger!!! 🙌🏻
That’s the update today. I know it’s not a pretty update but I’m hopeful that each day will continue to get better.
