P3 Day 10 - ???

We stayed at a hotel last night so the kids could swim. I forgot to pack my scale! I have NO idea how much I weigh today. I did have champagne to celebrate my closing and cheese off of a pizza, and some pepper jack last night (and that's pretty much all I had since I was moving non-stop yesterday).

I have to tell you I'm feeling very freaked out right now. While laying in bed this morning, I noticed a depression under my right nipple. I felt around it as I thought it looked and felt so odd. Above it I found a lump. My husband felt it too. He said I should definitely get that checked out (he's a very level headed guy, so when he shows concern, well, warning bells go off). Since my surgery was less than a year ago, I simply can't imagine... I am praying it is some sort of scar tissue or something like that. I've emailed my plastic surgeon and described what I'd found and have asked if I should make an appointment with his office. I'd kind of like his opinion first, since he knows them best. I just want to make sure this is or isn't something related to the surgery.

Happy 4th, guys! Have a great weekend.

UPDATE
I have continued to check the lump and I've felt the other breast, and I suspect this has something to do with the surgery. I think I feel something similar on the other side and since he had to move my nipples totally when he recreated my breasts, I'm almost positive it's related to that.

I am taking a deep breath and will now officially calm down. I'm sure I'll see the doctor soon and we'll make sure it's all okay (and if it isn't, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it).

I know how concerned you must be about finding that depression. Its great that you can e-mail your Dr. I'm sure he'll want to see you & check it out. Its probably nothing, but I know you & he will feel oh-so much better having him look at it, and see what he thinks.

I'm so glad you could have a little getaway to decompress after your whirlwind week! You got so much done & accomplished several goals this week. That has to be a good feeling!

Enjoy your weekend. Don't worry about the scale. So far, you have stabilized BEAUTIFULLY this P3, and I'm sure you will continue to do so. Worse case, if you do gain an iddy-biddy bit, you have the tools to deal with it! Steak day OR apple/cheese day. So relax, enjoy this family holiday, and enjoy your 4th! You've earned it!!

love you much-

Enjoy your weekend and try to relax about everything! Monday is business as usual and I'm sure you can get a few answers. My thoughts are with you.

Oh honey, I know how you feel... I got a massage a few weeks ago and the next morning when I was in the shower I felt a "lump" on my breast... Needless to say I was a little freaked out!! Then after I chilled out and thought about it I realized that it was my muscle which was all tight and tense...but that first feel is frightening!!! I am thinking of you and am sure that it has something to do with the surgery but I am also glad that you emailed you Dr!!! Hope you have a fantastic 4th of July!!
