My surgery is scheduled for this saturday. I have breast cancer in my right breast and wondered how long you are incapacited - eg not driving and feel awful. I am having a masectomy as the tumour is quite large. I know it will be diffenrt for everyone, but I am hoping not too long. I live on 20 acres out of town and will be fairly isolated if I can't drive.I guess it will depend on how many lymph nodes need to be removed.
Reading some of your blogs it has made me realise I may be off work for some time, but I have read some people go back to work fairly quickly too. I was wondering about other peoples experiences.
yes all went well, it is now 8 weeks since surgery and i have started chemotherapy. I feel really good in this third week since chemo and have to go back again next week. I have met some lovely people in local supprit groups and I also treasure the comments i receive on line. so thankyou for your reply
