    Jennifer, YIPPEE! Another chunk down and on to the next. I had a mastectomy, and thought it was very easy. I had a drain in for about 10 days, it was then taken out. I know my completely pain free surgery was unusual but just to let you know it can happen. I wish every woman my same experience. I did not have radiation so can't comment on that procedure. You just march right through your next steps in your treatment like the warrior you ARE! Hang in there, Jennifer, your sisters are all behind you with love and much support. Take care, Sharon

    Congrats on finishing chemo Jen! My sister has just finished two phases of her chemo, just started her third-will be having her mastectomy Oct 19, then 6 weeks radiation. I too am wondering how she will be feeling and how we can help her. She has two boys, ages 8 and 12, and I know she is going to need some help. I'm just not sure how laid up she is going to be.

    Good for you Jennifer, I feel like you have done the hardest first depending on they type of surgery. Advice: soft sports bra(no over the head kind, must be front or back closure), plenty of water, stay active(move around and walk when you're up to it ) but don't overdo, be sure to get all of your post-op orders, front opening pjs, do your shopping for bras and pjs before the surgery-you'll need them immediately. I didn't have chemo so I admire the strength of every women that endures it. Had a partial mast. and 3 nodes removed with no drains and 16 rads. It sounds like you're pumped and good to go, so GO GIRL !!! Jo :-D

    Dear Jennifer! A milestone is achieved. Step by step and sooner than you think it's over. Wish you all the best with your radiation, I have two chemos left before radiation. 

    Sharon Danielson, I'm so happy to know someone else had pain free surgery, I have people look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I had no pain, what I don't think they understand is that the nerves are cut during surgery so I still don't feel anything in the center of my chest. Mine was bilateral about 5 weeks ago, just starting to get a few twinges on the outside of my chest but more of an annoyance than anything else.
