The Breast Cancer Diaries – Day 23

Share on:

Welcome to day 23 of the breast cancer diaries.  Where do I begin?  Let’s begin with the fact that I am not healing as well as the plastic surgeon would like and I have to go see him again next week. He may have to do another wound debridement, which is gross.  However, if it’s necessary for my health what am I going to do.

I am slated to go back to school on March 30th but how can I work if I can’t raise my arms?  I won’t even be able to write on the board!  I also am not supposed to be lifting things.  Find me a teacher that goes in our out of school carrying nothing.  I dare you.

I’m also having panic attacks left and right and I don’t know why, but that’s on me.  There are things I can do to get through them and I will, but right now it’s just another thing I’m dealing with.

The sad part about all of this is the doctor won’t even schedule my reconstruction surgery until I’m healed for 3 months.  The recovery time for the reconstruction surgery is 6-8 weeks, which gives me a limited time over the summer to get it done.  I can’t miss more school time.  I mean school is being great, but I don’t want to be the person that is taking advantage.
