Aunt having surgery @ 8:30am
Hi all -
Please say a prayer for my Aunt Angela today. She is having a Radical Mastectomy to treat a recent recurrence of breast cancer.
She is a 24 year survivor with a previous left side mastectomy. She did have bilateral reconstruction and her implants are now encapsulated.
She did also test positive for BRCA 1 and will be having her ovaries removed.
So today's surgery will be extensive, will have 3 parts. The plastic surgeon will remove her old breast implants, the oncologist will remove her right breast, all tissue down to the bone and her lymph nodes and lastly, the oovarectomy.
It will be a pretty long procedure so please pray that she tolerates the anesthesia well and has good pain control after.
On a side, insignificant note I have finals today - bad timing. So please send some good vibes my way too as I try to juggle time at the hospital with time studying/testing.
