welcome to the site Sunflower, unfortunately i cannot help you with the dye stuff as i am one of the H&Neckers , good luck as there is a lot of wisdom and experience in your area on this site and you will eventually get some answers. Go forward with a positive mind and you will make it and also feel good. Dave

Hi Sunflower, The good thing with the blue dye injection is that it only hurts for a very very short time. I remember feeling panicked for a moment and then it was over. Best wishes for your surgery. Allicat

Re: new to this

thankyou for your lovely support. i read your message before I went to have the injections and it made me realise it was only one step on a long road - and i could get through it. I have so many postive comments and a phone call today from survivors i know now it is possible and it is ok to feel bad at times. Still got a smile!
