I had my surgery Thursday, a lumpectomy. They removed about a golf ball size from my breast. I can remember quite a bit from my surgery and it's really disturbing to me. I was wondering if anyone has had the same experience? I kept waking up and I can still see the surgen and things that were going on...it keeps coming back to me and it makes me cry. I'm still in some pain and I'm wondering will this go away once the pain goes away? I mean it's like my heart is breaking everytime I see the images of the operating room. It's really starting to worry me if I may be experiencing post tramatic symptoms...and if I am...what the heck do I do about it? Or am I just being silly and this will pass. Just wrting this I'm bawling. I just feel like a stupid mess.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
