  1. My new bike and I..

    One month ago, when the nurse said my scars were healed enough to be a little more mobile, I decided to get a stationary bike.

    I got a great bike two years ago (tricycle!!) and it did follow me in the move but I was too weak to get outside mid August, and it was way too hot anyway....plus soon it will be cold and dark at night when we come back from work...and I was hoping to just find a way to exercise more on the long run..I think that just walking during the day won't help me ...
  2. Iron infusion / pre-cancerous tumors

    My afternoon today at the hospital was really fruitful! My infusion went well, almost no side effect besides some nausea. The staff was amazing.

    The gyn decided to put me in chemical menopause since my iron level is just too complicated to manage and obviously my hemorrhages wont stop for a while so it will never get better without help.

    I'm a little scared of what will happen with the medication...but one thing at a time...I will try for three months and see the specialist ...

    It was nice to feel I was heard, the cardiologist last week was telling me ...
  4. 31 months, 3 weeks post op arm lift and removal of fatty tumors

    Hello friends!

    Those past weeks have been I've been focusing in trying to recover. It was unfortunate that we had several heat waves, at some point my scars didn't heal the way it should have and the nurse who came home decided to delay the removal of staples/stitches.
    It's all gone since Wednesday now and it did help a lot with mobility.But unfortunately we can see now that I did develop 2 "dog ears" and time will say if it will go away or if the surgeon will need ...
  5. 30 months, arm lift and removal of fatty tumors.

    Hello dear friends,

    I just had surgery two days ago. Left the hospital yesterday and feeling a little bit up right now but it's getting better each day.

    I'm very swollen (arms and legs) but I can see very well that my bat wings are gone for good, no more skin flapping around or getting painfully stuck in sleeves!

    The surgeon was really sweet and took his time to try his best to "repair" my legs so the surgery was longer than planned, he also ...
