    More hugs to to you, Red. As a small breasted woman myself, I can relate to your feelings. But perfection can take many imperfect forms. I'll be praying that it's the Big B; not the Big C. We'll be thinking of you. Please keep us posted if you can.

    Good luck!
    Yeah actually I did the surgeries for my recurrence (2009) under local. You have to be a bit mentally disciplined but it is so good that you are outta there much quicker (than if you were under general).
    Good decision on the incision! (Good poetry, huh?). I had multiple surgeries (both in 1996 and 2009) coz I had said "Take out as little as possible" and I would stick with that again even at the risk of more surgery.
    Keep us posted

    Red! I've missed this thread. Cheering you on today! Go do what has to be done, and move on. No-one gets out of life without scars, but this one will show that you were on top of things and taking control over your own health and wellbeing. Go for it!

    Thanks everybody! I slept well, am really thirsty, but so far, managing the fast well. I'm a big eater, so I was worried I'd feel awful by now. So far, so good (it is only 7 am though! I have several more hours). I'll be in good hands. Might not update until tomorrow.

    Margo, thank you so much for your input. It's good to know that you would do it the same again.

    Red, if you can, take a scone or something tasty to eat after the surgery! I had two outpatient surgeries and the things they offer you at the hospital are unappetizing (the saddest muffin I've ever seen, crackers...). Best of luck!

    I'm back! It went really well. I don't remember the surgery at all, even on just a sedative and local anesthetic. I have no pain yet. I have an ice pack and am taking Vicodine. Everything went completely smoothly. Thanks pll for all the advice. I had 4 heated blankets on me, which I wouldn't have asked for if not for your suggestion. I was freezing.

    Post Op, they gave me water, then toast with PB, and coffee, and it tasted so good to me. It was wheat Wonder Bread, which I haven't had in probably 25 years, so I think I was just so ready for food, anything would have been delicious. Or, I must love Wonder Bread. I didn't have any nausea or dizziness, either.

    When I asked the surgeon if it would look okay, she, in humble way, said she was really good, and I wouldn't be able to tell anything had been done. The nurses also said she was great (when she wasn't there), and my breast would be a work of art.

    Time for more pain meds. Thank you all so much for the moral support. It was much easier because of you.
