Back to work and perfect 3 month checkup!

New to my site?Click HERE to read my updates from the beginning.

Hello!  It's almost Friday, yay!

 

I went back to work on Wednesday after getting the ok from Dr. K.  I'm happy that I was able to take time off from work to recover, but also happy to be able to go back earlier than the original 2 weeks off.  It's great to be home but quickly gets boring especially since all I could do was sit on the couch or lay in bed, and day time TV is B.A.D.

 

Andy and I had a full afternoon of doctor appointments today.  The first was a follow up nurse visit at Dr. K's to remove the stitches from the...

Slowly recovering

Happy Friday! I had my post-op visit at Dr. K's yesterday and got a look at the new nipples and although they are still in the healing phase they look great.  Dr. K was very pleased with everything and was really happy with the first look of his product, haha.    

 

I'm pretty bruised and swollen around the breasts from the fat grafting but that's all normal.  I also have stitches in a few areas from where Dr. K inserted the fat around the breasts and and also a couple on my thighs from where he took the fat.  I'm more bruised around my legs than I was earlier in the week and still very...

Update from Surgery #4

I can't thank all of you enough for showering me with your positive thoughts and kind words as I went into surgery yesterday.  I am so lucky to have such incredible people in my life!   

 

Andy and I were at the outpatient facility bright and early yesterday at 6:30am for surgery #4.  We sat in the waiting room for a bit and then I went back at around 7:30am to get all prepped and ready for surgery.  I had the same nurse from last year's surgery who was super sweet, Nurse N.  I also had the same Anesthesiologist who recognized me from last year.  He and Dr. K have been working together as...

End of 2011 update and nipple re-do surgery 1

New to my website?  Click HERE to read my updates from the very beginning! 

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a fantastic end to their 2011 and that 2012 if off to a good start.  My 2012 has been going well and can’t believe it’s already the end of January!  

I’ve been doing very well since my last update (in August) in the cancer world and non-cancer world.  I have been thinking what the best way to recap the last 5 months would be to share it all without writing too much, and boring everyone, so I decided I would do bullet points.  Unfortunately, this website isn't able to convert the...

Good 3 month checkup!

Click here to read updates from the beginning.

Hi Everyone!

I had my 3 month follow-up with my Oncologist yesterday and he gave me all good news from the results of my tumor marker test and my physical exam. There are different types of tumor markers that are specific for different types of cancers. The breast cancer tumor marker is the CA 15-3 and the favorable range is below 25. My tumor marker level was at a 27.9. However, my Oncologist said that my levels have always run on the higher side which is fine since they have always been at a consistent level. Everyone’s body is very...

My Treasured Chest

Click here to read updates from the beginning.



A couple weekends ago, July 24th, I went for a day of pampering and relaxation with the Keep A Breast (KAB) Foundation. They are based out of San Diego and are the creators of the “I Love Boobies” bracelets and T-Shirts that you may have seen/heard about. They are an amazing organization dedicated to providing support to breast cancer survivors and spreading awareness and education about breast cancer prevention and early detection.

One of the programs that KAB holds frequently for breast cancer survivors is their “Treasured Chest” program...
