Pre op

Well let me tell you a bit about myself I am the only female in my family that carried the BRCA 2 gene from my mums side of my family,my brother also has it too. In June this year I had breast reduction and lipo to get ready to do the full pbm direct to implant next week. Today was pre op day for it as soon as I started walking up the hill to the western general in Edinburgh I began feeling sick and panicky.You would think I would know that by having the first op,but nope I am stressing out already. The nurse was great with me going back over the same stuff and seen the surgeon again just to make sure I was ok before next week, I swear every time I speak with him he instantly make me feel calm. So decided to cheer myself so when I got back to city went and got some fab bath bombs to use while I can before op day next week.
