Surgery done

Today I had my lumpectomy with reduction . Lymph nodes were clear and I feel not too bad at all! Such a strange mix of emotions but each treatment is a step nearer to hopefully beating this. Had a look at the scars and was not horrified as I expected , my breast looks decidedly perkier where they have done the reduction and resited the nipple lol. Now the wait to see f margins are clear but I’m not going to worry about that at least for today ! Thank you for all the support and sharing from all you brave, inspirational ladies. Carolyn xx
