new delay

I'm bummed.  I just got a call and my next fill appointment had to be rescheduled.  It was supposed to be for Wednesday the 21, but it got bumped all the way to March 12!   An extra 2 1/2 weeks.  Well, it doesn't sound so long when I put it that way.   It sounds longer if I say 5 weeks between fills.  Hey, maybe I can talk myself out of being bummed.  I'm at a good size, fairly even.  It's comfortable, and it'll give me time to find a bra that will feel good when they "biggie size" me.  Plus, I counted from the March date, and 6 weeks out from there is the end of April.  So maybe I can still have surgery in April.  I'd really rather not have it in May, just because of my birthday, anniversary, mother's day and all the rest.  But I'll take it whenever they can schedule it.

ugh, by may/june I'll be due for my yearly pap and mammogram.  I'm not looking forward to that mammogram.  I wonder if I need to schedule it before I have my surgery, since I'm getting a lift on the good side?  Hmmmm.... Things to ponder.  I'm really kinda afraid that it will show something and things will be thrown into a tizzy again.  That sort of thing happens to me all the time.   I'm not saying that I won't have my mammogram.  I just need to prepare myself.  When I get myself set on a schedule, and things get changed, I don't like it.  But if I prepare myself, then I'm cool. 

Or maybe they will tell me to have the mammogram later.  Like July, or however long it takes to heal sufficiently.

Sorry your appt got postponed.  It's like you are ready....anticipating....and the rug is pulled out from under you.  I think it will give you more time to look for a good bra! And that's always a plus.  I would think you should have the mammo before surgery.....but that's just my idea. Do what the Doc says.  He's the expert.
I just thought maybe because of being sore and also possible scar tissue that might be there.  But, he'll know better.  Let me know what he says.
Enjoy your nice warm weather.  It's nice here!!  Sunny, warm.
Hope you have a good night.
