Hi to all - got the call this morning & they had a cancellation & wanted to know if I would like to go ahead on that date. I was exstatic!!! - also I got an appt to see the Doctor next Monday - so now that my brain has settled in - I can ask the questions - I didn't ask at the consultation.
Wish me luck ladies ,
Hugs to all,

Your right about me being pumped!! I just emailed your Mom to tell her.

Will keep you all posted - but I'm really sitting on pins & needles- but at least I have another appt. with the Doctor so I can ask some questions that are bothering me.

I'm so glad you got all your questions answered...it's so important!

I'm also glad to hear it is being done at a hospital. We are a little more complicated than the norm and it's great to have all the specialist at our disposal.

I requested that I stay in the hospital overnight, it was great not to have to come home immediatey - can you ask your PS if it's possible? I highly recommend it!

OMG....I really am excited for you! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

PS: I think your COOL - Cool

Linda ----------- Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Was at my GP today getting all the info to give to the hospital on Tuesday -
As for staying overnight - I would rather come home as soon as possible.
It's just a stone's throw from where I live - (North York General Hospital) so my PS says - after a couple of hours - you can have your husband pick you up.
Not sure what to expect - If I will be in pain or what - but I think us gals take that - what could be more uncomfortable than having your Whole boob removed.
I'm sure the next few days will go very slowly - I just want to get this first part over with ----It will be so nice to have something where there was nothing Smile Smile Smile
Talk to soon & thanks for keeping in touch - it means a great deal to me.
Hugs,
Marilyn

Wow - we ALL hear you girl! Just TWO MORE DAYS!!!!!

That's great that your d/h is there for you. I lived quite a distance from the hospital, and you know that my husband passed away a long time ago. I only had my son and he was only 14 at the time. I didn't want him seeing me in any more pain. He saw me go thru surgery, chemo, and radiation - that was enough Crying or Very sad

I hope you're getting enough sleep with all the excitment about to begin. Keep us posted........I'LL BE THINKING OF YOU ON THE 10TH!!!!

Hi to all -
Had my pre-op yesterday - was there for three hours - they sure go over you with a fine tooth comb -
All the nurses like my PS - so that's a good sign - getting a bit edgy, but that's alright -
Will be in touch maybe late Friday afternoon or at least on Saturday.
Haven't heard anything from Terri -
Linda - when this is all over - I think we should meet for a coffee or lunch - whatever - I don't think you are very far from where I live.
Thanks for the encouragment - that really really helps -
Till next time,
Hugs to all,
Marilyn Smile
