Im a wife/ mother of 2. Just had my surgery a week...

Im a wife/ mother of 2. Just had my surgery a week ago today. I had a double mastectomy with expanders put in (200cc) i have 2 drainage tubes that are still in but have a feeling tomorrow they will be taken out since there is not much draining out anymore. They don't bother me as much as my armpits and upper chest i tried ice packs and it helps little then starts to ache i also have pain meds which didn't take away all the pain either but getting up out of chair or bed or move a certain way is very painful i also had 11 Lymnods taken out on one side that hurts the most I'm not a patient person lol but im very thankful that my pathology results were awesome!!! No more cancer Yea!! I did a total of 14treatments of chemo that's nothing compared to the pain in my pits well atleast to me i developed neuropathy in my feet and my hands from the chemo drug though but starting positive and pushing through this So if anyone has something that works for there pain let me know i want to try it. ? if you need encouragement i will help if i can God bless you all stay strong!!

Still in pain :(

Ok it's been 11days since surgery I'm not sure if I made things worse by going to my grama house in my brothers truck which is high so I had to pull myself up or all the laughing we did but my chest is killing me and I still have trouble getting out of the chair I sleep in where it brings tears in my eyes does anyone else feel stiff and in pain after that many days? I'm going to try go see the surgeon tomorrow and hope to have answers why I'm hurting this much :(

Not a good day

Today I woke up really stiff and in a lot of pain. Tried to see the doctor but was in surgery today so I'm going tomorrow just pray nothing is wrong and he will give me more pain meds I tried Motrin today and didn't get rid of my pain I even had a panic attack and almost went to the ER but thankfully I found that I had 2 of my pain pills left and took them and about an hour later both problems were gone. But when I move a certain way or bend over to get in chair my chest feels different not sure if something is wrong or what I pray that when I go tomorrow that it will be good news that everything is ok but why do I feel the expanses a lot more now then before and the pain hasn't lessen yet?? I hate feeling like this! This is the worst ever!!!
