    Learning About Breast Cancer
    Had surgery last week. All the nodes, 1 breast. Felt fair that day. And not bad at all since. Stiff, bit sore, but I'm moving good. Pain pills I was given didn't work, so I just didn't worry about. The drains come out nest. Huge recommendation - go to talc, and buy the drain holder the sell. I love the thing. Velcro bags to hold the drains, so the don't bounce around. Well worth the money.

      I'm glad your doing well. Your insurance should cover those tops. See if you can submit them. You just need an order from your Dr. Also, use a lanyard to pin them while in the shower! Prayers to you.

    Doing good. Still a bit stiff, but that's normal. Start radiation this week. Been dreading it, because it's a 3 hour round trip, 5 days a week, for 36-38 sessions.
