and I feel great! My incision for the tumor removal feels amazingly OK, and the biopsy site is only slightly tender. I'm going with the Arthritis-strength Tylenol today as I don't think I really need the Vicodin. I took it last night to be sure I didn't experience any pain, but it didn't keep me asleep. Tonight I'll try the Tylenol with my prescription sleeping pill - it works great for a good night's sleep. Of course, I had quite a long "nap" yesterday afternoon so maybe that's why I woke up at 3:45 and took forever to get back to sleep. And I was hungry!!!
Today I need to call the Breast Surgeon's office to schedule an appt for next week to get stitches removed and she has to do something with these Mammosite tubes. And I need to contact the Oncology Radiologist to set up the 5 day radiation program.
I can't tell you how happy I am that I made the decision to do the surgery first and have the Sentinel Node Biopsy. Although things could change in the final pathology report, the preliminary one showed no cancer cells in the node. Had I done chemo prior to surgery, I would have never known the status of the nodes. Knowledge is power!
