Mentally though, well that has being a … Continue reading 2 months post op – back to work and mental health
The thought of making something bespoke and from the heart either for your home or as a gift for me personally gives the greatest of satisfaction.
Day 9 post op. Yesterday I set myself the challenge that I was going to wear actual clothes (for the 2nd time since my op) and once I’d done the school drop off I was going to go to the cemetery and have a walk. Within 3 seconds of putting my clothes on this morning … Continue reading Bilateral Breast Reduction – Day 9 & 10 post op
