My mastitis is much improved although I’m still feeling pretty rubbish. I do not know how much is related to the infection or the use of metal during the procedures as me and metal do not get on. For surgery I have latterly been given antibiotic and steroid cover pre-op which of course didn’t happen on this occasion but when I think about it, I probably had more metal in me for longer than I would have done for some of my other full blown operations.
Anyway, I have now engaged in photographing my breasts and sharing said photos via social media and the internet so I have much in common with 21st century youth. Ha!
I am beginning to tell people of what is happening. Which is, in itself slightly odd. As there is not much to tell: I feel rubbish; I have had horrid but very necessary examinations due to abnormalities found only through an NHS screening program; I am waiting for results. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting. So the numbers I have told are few. Very very few. Because there is not much to tell.
My next appointment is the 15th. It feels a very long way off.
