Monday the 13th August was to see my 6th surgery and after a few delays it actually happened. A new hospital, I have been in quiet a few in the last 3 and a half years. I was admitted to Castle hill day Surgery. The staff were all really lovely!
The operation was not far off the time. I was admitted at 1pm and discharged at 6.30 pm which was ok as I was settled at home and in good spirits. They made my nipples from my scar tissue. I think I have lost enough body parts now, that made sense to me to use something already there.
This is day 3 and the pain is still there so I will stay on the painkillers for a little longer. I am padded up with foam and I think I may resemble Dolly Parton just a little (you have to always look at the funny side). Spent the whole day in bed yesterday, sleeping on my back is really hard I love to sleep on my tummy, but it will be a little while yet. I am having bandages off on next Tuesday, so I will see the end result then.
I wanted to recommened my Doctor he is really lovely I have blogged about him before, he is Peter Laniewski, he is lovely and he explains things really well and is a very nice man. It's really important on this voyage to trust and like your doctors. I have been lucky with most of mine.
Excited that I have actually had 6 surgeries in 3 and a half years, which has been a big deal for my body. Today I am smiling and sleeping, more sleeping. I was afraid Monday and now, what a relief another step forward for me...
