I can is wow Maria (Dr/nurse) done a fantastic job she said we will take it slow so she cleaned up the drain and the only bit that hurt was the stitch in the drain holding it in but when I say hurt it's not like giving birth!
She told me to take a breath and I did then started to blow out she said keep it there and out but I said to her the next one can you tell Me what to do before u do it and she said there both out WHAT OUT yayyyyyy could not believe it was great!! Xx

Blisters!! Yuk

Hi guys was wondering if any of you had allergic reaction to dressing I have and ended up was massive blister yuk I have little blisters all around the dressing but my friend says it look a little like heat rash too I have been to my local Drs today to have my dressing all changed as my nurse from transform wants me to drive to London which is 2hr drive away and have dressing changed when they promised me they would have a nurse at Milton Keynes which is 1/2 hour away but now they haven't!! other than that everything is great xx happy healing xx

Blister

Day 11

Well it's day 11 and I feel fantastic
And I went today to get my dressing changed after a lot of palava! My blister is healing nicely and my scare is brilliant (I will post pics) I'm so happy I traveled 5hr round trip thanks to my niece.
My nurse is more than happy with everything it's just a shame I had to get heat rash from the nylon CG so I just have my binder on which is great xx happy healing and good luck Suzanne :-) xx

28th April Revision Done

Hi girls sorry I haven't posted sooner I have been lazy!
I had the revision done all is good other than for some reason I get heat rash from this binder I slept last night without it on I'm resting up but have decided if this is not right I don't care I'm not doing it again ! I feel a bit sicki today and have a headache don't know if it's from antibiotics or if that's just how I feel :-( x
I'm having my dressings changed tomoz so hopefully will up date u with some pics he did say the scare was slightly higher to get rid of the lump that was there but we will see quite excited.
Take care all xxxxxx

Forgot to take a pic!

Hi, all is well but I forgot to take a pic I'm going again Tuesday so will get one then x

Revision pics

Hi guys sorry it's taken so long been busy doing nothing if u get what I mean! Lol
Right I had my revision on 28th April all went well it was kinda like child birth, you forget what you go through lol
Mr mashhadi said the scar was higher but he had to because we needed to get rid of the old scar tissue and it would of popped up else where, so I'm posting pics and my first TT was amazing but obviously the lump was there and this time not as pretty but it's how I want to look in clothes that matters and it still sits in my bikini bottoms so thats good!
Hope your all well xxxx

28th May 1 month later

Happy happy happy
Revision results are great and can wear what I want now :-)
