    goodmorning ladies I made it home last night around 8 from hospital. My ps tried to expand my breast in OR but to much scare tissue and to tight so had to come home with expander in that really s---. But he knows what is best but boy do I hurt I feel like he got a hold of Sandy's pink bat and beat the crap out of my chest and ribs. I am in a lot of pain taking pain pills every 4 hours as told no if ands or buts about it. I was in recovery for a long time they couldn't get the pain under control I maxed out on morphin and fentinal so They finally sent me back up to my room around 4 p.m. my surgery was at 12:30. I go back to see ps next mon for post op then I start that fill thing all over again I am going to wait till summer is over before anymore surgery's I need a break my body is yelling at me for a break. I will keep you all posted thank you so much for all your prayers and good wishes. Angel hugs Roberta

    thank you and I will still be off balance for a while needed to get expander. So will need fills again before I get my new implant but that is ok as long as I don't start to walk lop sided. Because that would look a little funny and scary for any child near me I would look like the hunch back of notra dame, I could put one of my fiber fill boobs on my back and really make it look good and walk lop sided lol.. I am getting so used to having only one it is going to be strange when they do getmy other side filled up to have two breast the same again. Have a great day angel hugs Roberta

    Thank you for the bus ride it was nice to have you all there I could feel you all comforting me through the day. Just wish you had a stronger drink to take the pain away.The doc treated me great he did what he felt was best so I would not get another infection and that was to put the expander in because there was to much scare tissue and skin to tight to put the implant right in. I was worried about waking up with some crazy toe naisl no I had a crazy hair do all sticking up like crazy uumm who did that? It looked like someone teased it all over. I went with my hair still a little wet so I guess that is what I get and some help from others moving me around.Have a great day angel hugs Roberta

    Surgery went well I guess we will be getting fills together I had to get an expander in and not the implant. Due to a lot of scare tissue and skin being to tight he could not put the implant right in plus it could cause and infection with it being so tight. So we can get fills together and I am going to give my body a break and wait till after summer to get the implant in. My body is screaming at me and needs a break right now from surgery. I like how you say you have been really good then say not all the time bad girl lol.. as long as you do what you should be doing for the drains to work and taking care of that then you are good. I am thinking of you and sending my angel hugs always Roberta

    Hello thank you for your good wishes and all. My sense of humor will always be here that is something that no one or nothing can take away. It stayed strong all through the battle with cancer no matter what I was going through I still had my sense of humor that is just how I am alway finding the fun in everything. I have always been that way since I was young. I have never been one to dwell on the negative or think about but what if this happens type stuff. I due put pros and cons of things and weigh the two to make decitions sometimes but that is about it. I don't like thinking about the neg for to long if I can help it.So that is were my sense of humor comes in to turn a neg into something fun and positive. Have a great day angel hugs Roberta

    Roberta,
    I'm sorry you had to get expander again! At least you are listening to your p.s. and your body. You don't need an implant that is gonna get infected again. My implants feel tight, i hope they aren't too tight. Will find put tomorrow. Stay on those pain meds girl and rest, rest, and rest!! Don't worry bout the neighbors here, they already know i'm nuts! Matter of fact, they are too!! That's why we gel so well!! I will call you tomorrow to check up on you! Now behave yourself!
    All i have to say is next summer, we better all be at my pool, celebrating this b.s. being behind all of us!! Stay strong and gentle angel hugs your way!!
    Love and lucky shamrocks

    Roberta,
    You have such a good sense of humor! I needed a good laugh today! I am supposed to be cheering you up! I hope the expander doesn't hut too much. Is it like the first time or is there more room in there? I am asking in case I have to get one of these replaced.I cannot get the image of the fiberfill boob on your back out of my mind! That is going to have me snikering for awhile! It is funny how you get used to the changes. Then you have to do it again. I hope you feel better soon.
    Love and Hugs ,
    Cindy
