Makeovers Are Funner Than Sugeries! Who Knew?
Saturday, Nov. 4th. Two days post-op (me middle)Had surgery on Thursday to remove 5 masses. I know 4 are melanoma, the 5th is a little lump I found in my right breast a couple days before the surgery. Waiting for path results.
As of Sunday Oct.29th, I have lost mobility in my right wrist, elbow, and most of my fingers. I scribble like a 5 year old when I sign my name. I am typing with my left hand and right index finger only. I have been wearing a hat because I can't manipulate my hands to use a hair elastic and I don't have enough arm strength to blow dry my hair. I'm getting used to it though and finding other ways tp do things. In the pics, no hat because I had friends to do my hair!
My surgeon is concerned about this, so I stayed the night in hospital because they said that way I'd be first in line for MRI's and CT's if spots came up. And they did. I had 2 CT's and an MRI. I know my brain is clear of mets which is a huge relief, because loss like this can be a sign of cancer spread to the brain. It is more likely that there is tumour growing in or near the brachial plexus nerves but I'll get answer to that next Friday. It could just be scar tissue incringing on the area from the Oct 19th surgery-- that's my theory and hope! Geez, it hurts to type. My blogs might be short and sweet for a bit till they get my hand working again!
Went out last night for a friend's early birthday and had lots of fun. No drinkin' though since I'm popping Methadone, Percocets and Gabapentin! We had our faces done and MAC Cosmetics then went out for Thai. Lookin' pretty hot 48 after cancer surgery if I do say so myself!
Pre-makeover. No make up. Trying to look pathetic.
Post-Makeover ! Hot chicks!
