All OK

I had my appointment today, and it was a round trip of 370 miles.
Both of us are shattered having got up at 5.30, and on the road before 7.

I actually saw one of the other consultant surgeons as mine is away for a further two months.
She was lovely, and the relief is immense.

The scar tissue is fine, the indentation at the side normal and the pain will be intermittent as the incision was over the muscle. The hardness under the skin is where I ‘cooked’  and thus not flexible, but starting my exercises again (new booklet obtained) should help.

The side effects of the hot flushes, mood swings and problems with trying to lose weight are all pill related. Apparently if they get too bad, I can come off my meds for a 6 week break and if things improve, can be prescribed something else.
I’ve decided to stick with the devil I know in Anastrozole unless it all becomes intolerable, but I don’t think it will get to that stage, especially as I know now that everything is OK.

I will apparently be getting an annual review around this time each year as well as my mammograms in September now.
The consultant offered to have my file moved here, but I said I wanted to keep it with them as health care up here sucks. She understood perfectly.

Maggie bless here is exhausted as she hasn’t had her naps during the day. She’s been wonderful though, and we stopped several times to change drivers and have a walk around. We took food and water for her and some sandwiches and a flask for us, though we did have a McDs around midday.

Thank you all for your supportive comments. It helps more than you know.

I’ll catch up with my other challenges tomorrow as I’m going to put my head down now and hopefully gain access to the Land of Nod in a few minutes.
Maggie and Hubby are already there.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
