home from explant surgery

Just wanted to let you know I had the explant, irrigation and drainage surgery this morning. Everything went fine. I already feel much better than yesterday with the infection.

They wrapped me up tight with the surgical bra and a drain, to encourage the pocket to close.

Strangely (or not) the surgical center employees were especially comforting, even catering to me. Unfortunately for them, I couldn't help feeling a tad bit resentful (this IS where I obviously picked up an infection!)...but I did feel cared for and got alot of sympathy from my pre-op nurse.

Ok...running out of energy! Thanks to all of u for the support and caring this forum provides. Don't know what I 'd do without sharing this with you, sharing your experiences as well...

Glad you're home safe & sound

I'm so glad you're feeling better hon. You must feel a great relief with that nasty infection gone. Now you can concentrate on healing. Don't worry about the next BA you have plenty of time to think about "getting even". Just get lots of rest and TLC, remember all of us women are behind you. Sending you all of my love and best wishes, your boobie sister Lizzie. P.S. !!!
