2nd ps visit before surgery

I never understood...Kronowitz has my chest area (both sides) all marked up with Sharpie pen....a 'go-by' if you will, of the surgery on Monday. Ok...that's fine, no biggie. Then, they give you some antibacterial liquid soap for that area to cut down on infection, etc. But don't wash off the markings! lol I've drawn and re-drawn! lol Can't move...I'll perspire and wash it off! Can't exercise like I'd like to... Can't take a walk with Graland.... Can't wait for them to get it all wiped off of me! lol I'd like to sweat again AND take a standing shower! lol

Second visit. Since my last visit, I have decided to go ahead and get an implant on both sides. It would be nice to fill out my bra or swimsuit. I've never filled out ANYTHING before. I want to get this done and get it behind me, and do it during ONE surgery. Just looking at a B cup here..nothing fancy! I called earlier and they said it would be no problem. Well, when I got there, they found out the order time had passed (or something like that). So Brenda was running around phoning reps. By the time my appointment ended they had two reps who were going to hand deliver the implants Monday morning before the surgery. wow. Good news! I have not had that sharp pain in my abdomen! It has gone on for a year and now it is gone. So good!! I will not have to have the incision opened again. Praise God!

I had breast reconstruction via tram flap. They took tissue from my tummy and moved it up to make a new breast. It was one of the most painful things that have ever happened to me. That's saying a lot...I never thought I'd have anything more painful than 3 rounds of chemo.

Brenda is the best, isn't she?
