The red line high up on the breast is my reaction to the tape. I always turn red along the edges of that thin transparent tape they use.
The blue spot is from where they injected the dye into the tumor to track the location of the "first-in-line" (sentinel) lymph nodes. That spot isn't supposed to be there. It surprised the surgeon. It won't wash off. It may end up as a permanent tattoo.
The yellow is bruising. The bruising above my hand looks worse in this photo than in real life.
Some of the fullness is swelling, but actually, not much.
A better view of the incision. See how well the little old lady heals? This is one week after surgery.
Sigh. Can you see why I want a major reduction? Nobody needs to carry that around. By the way, I'm not lifting them here - that's their normal droop.
I rather like the way my hair looks.
