I saw a woman today who'd had a mastectomy last week for multi-focal breast carcinoma. She's doing fantastically well! She was home from the hospital in two days and was out walking around the block two days after that. I saw her today for some blood work before she starts chemo. Her incision looks great and she's feeling wonderful. She seems to understand what she's up against and has a solid support system among her family, friends and church.
One thing she shared with us was just hilarious. She said it cracked up the nurses in the hospital too:
