Yesterday I had surgery to remove my ovaries in order to help keep the breast cancer from returning. Surgery went well except that I had a bit of trouble with bleeding. After being in recovery for about 5 hours I was finally moved to a bed in oncology ICU where I was kept until this afternoon.
I had a long night. For some reason I kept bleeding from my incisions. Then my blood pressure dropped, heart rate went up, and I started running a temperature. My surgeon contacted a cardiologist and they ran some tests on my heart, which all came back negative. Everything started going back to normal this afternoon so I was finally discharged.
I am happy to be back home in my own home tonight where I have my husband taking care of me.
