We got a kick in the pants late last night. We ended up in the urgent care where a surgeon took a look after he removed the tape.
After inspection, the wound is just fine except the end under the arm is jolly sore.
What really was burning sore and raw with blisters is my sensivity to tape glue. Yes. 
And I did make it 24 hours.
Now I have a top made out of stretchy net burn tubular band that holds gauze in placevwith tape on top.
Much better.
However diclofenac is still my friend.
The guys are my home care heros. Boy is here to mind mama for 10 days

Now that I can breathe again.
Pathology report: no cancer cells in the sentinel node.
Pathology report: this tumor is twice as big as the original cancer and was sitting in a pool of precancerous cells.
We dodged a serious bullet here.
Hormone therapy is of so little benefit, and side effects are such that our decision was no. So besides painkillers, that is it.
So now I heal.
There is a damaged nerve in the armpit that hopefully will heal but makes reaching and movement a screamer literally. Patience.
My daughters do not have to fear. Just regular checkups after 40.
Checkups is how this all started.
If you love the women in your world, make sure they get their mammograms regularly.

Sorry you're going through this, Jana, but grateful you caught it before it got worse. I hope you heal quickly and fully!

More than one person has remarked on my strength and attitude.  Mostly people who do not really know me.
Mostly the last month is deer in the headlights time.
I depended on the sacred bubble created by prayer warriors all over the world.
Idepended on Himself to get me where I needed to go on time. He found ways to keep me mentally distracted and serene.
I depended on the Lord to send the Comforter.
Yesterday's  news was profoundly sobering. We came close to the abyss all unaware.
I am just grateful that all things worked together for good and I  have a few more wonderful memories to make.
I know of two women who are getting their checkups this month.  That makes me glad.
But oh stage 2 cancer ....holy smoke. And that is with regular screens.

There is constant back and forth on how often and when to conduct screenings for various cancers. Does the dragnet approach put too many people through unnecessary surgery? How many ultimately uneccesary surgeries are too many when trying to catch a real tumor early? The recommendations are constantly being revised, which I think is a good thing.

In this country every woman between 50 and 75 gets an invitation every 2 years for a visit to the breast bus that comes and parks in your vicinity.
That is how a sharp eyed tech found a teensy mass 2 years ago.  I  had a tissue sparing no node removal.
This mass was discovered on my 2 year wellness followup.  It was totally unexpected.
As it turns out it was twice bigger than tumor 1 and surround by pre cancer. So the mastectomy with sentenal node removal was an excellent option.
I am 71.  I  could have blown off my free walk across the street screening.  This year with corona  and broken toes I could have put that followup off or forgotten it. We shudder to think what could have been.
I am not sure what you, Jason, are naming unneccessary surgeries or scans.
But yeah, since I am the poster girl for mammograms save lives, I am a bit biased.

I go get my mammogram tomorrow, though it was scheduled before learning about your experience, Jana. Hopefully, it will be clean and clear as before.
