Counting down the hours! My surgery is scheduled for 8:30am on Thursday and should last about three hours. We are doing reconstruction on my left/flat side and pocket revision plus implant swap on the right side. I’m excited to finally get here after the six-month wait, but I’m also very nervous. Not knowing what is waiting for me is uncomfortable.
My bedside box o’ recovery crap is ready! I used my PBM checklist to gather the essentials:
- Back scratcher
- Tiara (of course!)
- Digital thermometer
- Measuring cup
- Alcohol swabs
- Chap stick
- Phone and charger
- Rubber gloves
- Lanyard (I will very likely have a drain or two)
- Hand sanitizer
- Cough drops
- Note pad and pen
I think I’ve got it covered. Don’t you? Now I just need to pack my hospital bag. I expect to be home in the afternoon, so this should be quick. Wish me luck! Talk to you later ‘gaters.
I’ll be thinking about you, girl! Good luck, and speedy recovery!
I just had the very last revision on my left breast after a PBM 2 years ago. Good luck to you! I will check in for updates! My blog about my journey is http://oktatafornowblog.wordpress.com/
I always have to have the KIt close to hand!!!
Sending you healing hugs for a speedy recovery and boobs that you love!
