I was just wondering how you are doing? Also wondering how you are finding the community?
I saw you posted another question yesterday. Having any operation is a daunting process, but when it is cancer related it is natural to feel even more anxious about things. I am sorry you don't have your mother around for support, but I hope you are able to speak with others.
Are you in the UK or somewhere else?
Wherever you are, it is very likely there is some sort of Cancer support group available to you.
As for side-effects of surgery, well this all depends on your personal circumstances and details of the cancer you have, and any further treatment you may be having.
The surgeon and breast care team will advise you of what will happen post-surgery, if you have not been informed I encourage you to make an appointment as soon as possible.
Recovering from surgery is very dependant on you and your state of health, it is different for everyone. There are some similarities between breast cancer patients, but not exact.
If you would like to talk about any of this, feel free to ask or chat. You can do this also by going back to the questions you posted, and you will see any replies people have posted.
