First surgery of the year is over.

First surgery of the year is over.

Last week I went in for the surgery that was the prep for the big one in two weeks.
All went well, got to go home the same day as the surgery. I was a little surprised at just how big the incision is though. I was expecting a little two inch cut on my abdomen. Nope. The incision is basically from hip to hip just under my belly. You skinny ladies will not know how uncomfortable this is. I have a belly. I call her Muffy, short for Muffin Top. We are old friends, I have known Muffy most of my adult life. The suture line is in that crease underneath Muffy.
Mounds also gave Righty an upgrade. He took out the tissue expander and replaced it with a boob much nicer than the original. Score! I am half stacked now. I have one tit and one pit.
The big surgery is scheduled for early Feb. This one will relocate Muffy north to my pit. It involves tunneling and removing rib sections. How gross is that? Glad I will be asleep.
I had an appointment with Mounds this morning to check the incisions and pull a few stitches. He also marveled at his handy work with Righty. He commented on what a beautiful breast is was and then took a photo. I wonder if Mounds has children or if he just carries around a wallet full of breast photos? He acted like a proud papa. Whatever, the man is a genius.
I have been ordered to take it easy for the next two weeks so I will be ready for surgery. No more horseback riding, no swimspa, no lifting more than 5lbs, no stairs. That should be easy…….

Lovin Life!

Lovin Life!

Enjoying every minute of the days before I start back up with the cancer battle. Sunday was a gorgeous day, both my daughters joined me on a wonderful ride on the beach. I am really enjoying riding horses again and am so fortunate to live in such a lovely county where there are so many beautiful trails and beaches.
Tomorrow I have an appointment with Mounds to iron out all of the details regarding the procedures and surgeries. I am certain I will regret all of the over indulging during the holidays when Mounds examines me and wants to start coloring on my abdomen. Cringe.
