My port is gone!

IMG_1843

I’m a little sore today, but it’s nothing compared to the double mastectomy last July. The surgeon didn’t have to go in and mess with the alloderm and implant, as the initial issue I was having has settled down. Aside from removing the port, he did a few little tweeks to the outer layer of my breasts to improve symmetry and the overall appearance of the scars. Phew, glad to have that over with and NO drains this time! Yipee! Port-o-caths were a great invention to help the cancer patient, but I’m oh so happy to say good bye to mine. Sayonara!

So I have to take it easy with my arms for a bit, no heavy lifting… or no lifting at all I should say. I’m going to be a good girl and do as I’m told. Gardening season is coming up, with a fun summer to follow and I want to be in good shape to enjoy all of that. Just wanted to share the good news and my oh so sexy pre-surgery photo! ; )
