Week 3 post mastectomy. Its been an adventure!!


Well, I started off Monday quite well!! The last two of the drains where removed! I’m free!!! Now I know what my dog feels like when he sneaks by me, and runs out the front door! To be tied to yourself three weeks can make you batty!


Run Boomer,run!

I also had a follow up appointment with my breast surgeon on Wednesday. So far I am healing well. However, I am not out of the woods with the right side. Let’s not forget the right girl had 33 rounds of radiation, which could cause issues. She had one hell of a tan!!


Well maybe not Snooki tan. But it had a Jersey Shore glow!

On the same day of my follow up with my surgeon, I start running a low grade fever. I feel like crap!!! What a tease it is to be able to be more mobile, then bam! A fever smacks me in the face!

Now, I am no stranger to running these fevers.  After every surgery and round of chemo I got one. But this is different, I ran one right out of surgery and now I am on day three of  this crap. So its back on another round of antibiotics for me.

To be continued…


About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!
