Today, Matt removed the bandages. We weren't sure what we would find underneath .... surprisingly, just a line where the lump was removed and a line where the nodes were removed. A little bruising, basically intact. It was a task taking a shower and washing my hair, but very refreshing.
I'm still a little light headed, but not in terrible pain. I haven't had a pain pill in over 10 hours.
I finally got my leave of absence paperwork off for my short term disability. My appointment with the radiology oncologist is Dec 29. My follow up with the surgeon is Jan 3. I'm anxious to hear what stage the cancer is and what the treatments will be. Matt has offered to shave his head bald if I have to go through chemo. Isn't that nice? But I like his curls.
