    Thanks Debbe for asking. Physically I am doing great. It is just that I am always tired. Simple things such as taking my son to school and making dinner can wipe me out for the day. I do not remember being so exhausted last year.I have very little pain most of the time. I am still on pain pills. I have a very bad rash under my breasts which is from the brace and the heat. I have a prescription powder which is helping somewhat. Also, my feet and ankles are still swollen. I am going for a dobbler ultrasound to make sure that there is no blood clots.

    Take care

    Melissa

    well no wonder you're tired, that must be normal. Especially if you're still on pain pills. Bummer about the rash. Could the rash present a problem if it's not cleared up in time for the next surgery?

    Good question about the rash. I emailed my surgeon and we shall see what he wants to do
