Discussions that mention tylenol

Cancer: Breast board


I am new here and this is my first post so please, bare with me! I am scheduled for a mastectomy, after 2 failed lumpectomys'. I am terrified, to say the least, but I am concerned about the pain following the surgery? Can anyone tell me how it was for them? I did very well for pain for my lumpectomys, didnt even take tylenol. I guess I think this is going to be just horrible. I am getting immediate reconstruction following the mastectomy. An expander will be put in and then I will get weekly injections, into the expander, until my skin is stretched enough for the final implant. My question is....what does it feel like to get that injection into the expander? And, what does it feel like to have your skin stretched with the expander? :eek:
I really hope somebody can give me some information based on their own experience.
Thank You! : :)
