;D Happy New Year everyone!! The 29th was my 6 week post-op and I am now released to gradually ease back into my life.I was told I am healing fine...The only problems I have now are leaking from my right breast(going to get a mammogram and hormones checked today)The famous UTI,and swelly belly,and I still get tired easy.(I also have rheumitoid arthritus so that cotributes to the fatigue)But all in all I feel fairly well.Ina
Congratulations on reaching 6 weeks!!! Keep in mind that just because you are released doesn't mean that you are healed! Take it easy and rest every chance you get. Please let us know what you find out at the doctor....we will be thinking of you! Best wishes! Jana
I agree with Jana - don't over do it - listen to your body - even though you have the clearance from your doctor - it is not clearance to spring clean your house, and lift heavy parcels - if you get pains - you are over doing it - slow down - and increase your work load and lifting heavy items slowly.
re: leaking breast: are you taking hrts? This may be caused because you hrt needs to be adjusted - Hope it is nothing serious. Keep us posted.
- Happy New Year to you too!
Be blessed and be a blessing!

Sorry it has taken so long for me to reply.The mammogram turned out fine,and they upped my hormones and the leaking seems to have gone away.I seem to still be sore inside,and it seems my ability to remember stuff is gone....(whats my name again..lol) I feel alot better.I did move all my furniture around to clean so maybe that has something to do with the soreness.Anyway I appreciate all the concern and really enjoy the help I get here and will try to visit more often!Ina
