This past week has been busy, yet I've been doing a lot of sitting around. It just feels better to sit than to stand. Standing and walking (with the help of gravity) just doesn't feel too good on the incisions. It's just too much pulling down on everything and when I say everything, I mean my boobs. I constantly have my shoulders scrunched up around my ears and I don't have a lot of use with my left arm. It is incredibly sore from surgery and especially where the lymph nodes were removed. When I straighten my left arm out completely, I get pains that shoot down my arm and around my elbow. I pray that this goes away in time.
The next day, August 8th, I called my oncologists office to find out if they had any results. The girl I spoke to told me that everything looked clear and good. I was so relieved! I had a good cry when I got off the phone. Finally, some good news!
