    So good to hear from you, Red. I'm relieved it went well and that the surgery part is over. I'm praying for good news.

    Red, glad it all went well. good for you for being a brave soldier. Drink lots and lots of water to help your body flush the anesthetics and pain meds. Heal fast but don't push yourself.

    been through it twice and so glad it went well, I will continue to stomp and wave and sing for good results.

    Red, you're a trooper and you will look beautiful, even more so for being well on the inside.

    Awww, thanks.

    I felt queasy and dizzy after the Vicodin last night, so I took only half of the next one, and then moved on to Tylenol 6 hours later. There is no pain at all in my breast, so I probably don't even need that anymore. I've also stopped icing, which I think helped more than the pain killers. My hand, where the IV went in, is the only thing that's a little uncomfortable, and sleeping wasn't good. It feels too soon to lie on my side, so I tried to stay on my back, which isn't the way I normally sleep. Other than that, I think I'm doing really well.

    DBF will be making dinner tomorrow, and the only thing I might do is an apple crisp. Easy. I'm not going on my normal pre-guest cleaning frenzy. I'm sure they don't care and won't notice anyway. I'm just taking it easy until I can't. I'm already thinking about Saturday's ride. It's supposed to be beautiful here. I think I'll be ready for an easy one, based on how I feel now, but I won't do anything stupid.

    So happy to hear you are doing well! You probably will be able to ride Saturday; just don't push it, if you don't feel like 100%. It's supposed to beautiful this weekend.
    Hey, I was thinking, one of these days we should meet and maybe do a ride on the South Coast; probably next spring!

    Happy to hear that you're doing well, Red. Isn't it nice that they can give you meds (non general anesthesia) where you don't even remember a medical procedure/surgery?! Loved that when I had my colonoscopy in the spring. No memories except before and after.

    Hoping for very good news for you soon!

    I guess I am way behind on reading the forums as I just saw this thread. Hoping that you get a good report and that waiting for the results isn't causing you too much stress.

    Thanks!

    I'm healing really well. Taking off the bandage was scary. I had this fear it would look like the Bride of Frankenstein's breast, so I was relieved to see it. It looks better to me than before, which I assume is more emotional than aesthetic. Except for the stitches, you can't tell anything was done, and it feels normal.

    I got back on the bike on Fri, and rode yesterday and today, too. I'm just taking it easy, and not overdoing it, but riding feels great. I still feel a bit tired, so I'm relaxing as much as I can. I'm not worried about the results. I know whatever it comes out as, I will be okay.

    Except for the nausea from the pain killers, this part was painless.

    How did I miss this thread? Oh, I know, I had a horrendous mammogram last year and didn't want to add anxiety. Glad I womaned up and read through the whole thing. You've had quite the odyssey Red - it sounds like you've had awesome doctors and nurses.

    Thinking good thoughts for you.

    Hey, thanks for holding off on that! Now that mine is over, what happened with yours? Was the mammogram itself the problem, or the results?
