Dag-blamitt! I’m still having significant pain issues. Why does it take so long to heal? I’m ready to start implementing changes and getting into a good fitness routine. That’s hard to do when your body doesn’t yet want to cooperate. Some things I can start implementing. Now that I found my wallet, it’s time to revisit Trader Joe’s and get transitioned to a more macrobiotic/raw foods based diet. I feel I’m just going to have to work through the pain, grin and bear it so to speak, as that may be the only way to heal. I have to move the upper part of my body. I think if I’d chosen a full mastectomy vs. skin-sparing, I wouldn’t have such pain issues. I think the majority of the pain comes from the remaining skin bunching and adhering to the chest wall, basically scar tissue type pain. Hopefully, I’ll get into the Star Program at Seton Hospital that my oncologist’s office has referred me to and start physical therapy to get me into better shape to start a good fitness program.
