After my appointment with my surgeon today, it seems as though I will need to have yet another surgery; it's been scheduled for three weeks from today. (He can't do it any earlier due to the fact that he has to wait a certain amount of time following the exchange surgery for healing to take place.)

There are a couple things going on that he wants to work on. The issue that was causing me the pain under my left arm is due to some sort of tendon or muscle thingie that "popped out" from its surroundings and is protruding, which makes that whole area hurt. (He had some big name for it but I don't remember it.) He has to fix that surgically and also do some work on the implant "pockets."

Just like with the exchange surgery, this surgery won't be as difficult as the mastectomy, but it will still require at least a week or two of recovery, especially with the arm situation.

So anyway, that's the deal on that.

Ta-ta for now!
