The not-so-scary mastectomy blog

Yesterday was D-day for me. Checked in at hospital at 6:00 and by 8:00 I was in theatre. Woke up three and a half hours later feeling really horrible. The pain was not nearly as bad as I anticipated, but I was stiff and could not even sit up by myself.

Angelina Jolie also revealed that she had a mastectomy and reconstruction, so, I find myself in good company.

Woke up this morning feeling so much better. I can stand up by myself and there is minimal pain.

The support I got from my family and friends were overwhelming. It is sometimes good to go through something like this to once again realise how many special people you have in your life.
