Well...I am back and feeling pretty good. It was a long day...up at 5:30am....and home at 7pm that evening. I haven't had to take much for the pain. Today I managed to get out for a short walk with my husband around the neighbourhood..and had a nap. Tomorrow the bandages come off...so I am a little nervous about that. So far so good. I now wait for approx. 2 weeks for the pathology report...so hopefully it will come back okay...then radiation will start.
