I've had a few emails and PM's about my progress so thought I would post it here. Yesterday I had my appointment at the cancer center. I certainly found out how blessed I have been. The type of breast cancer I had was Negative Estrogen Receptor and the size was 1 centimeter. This type of breast cancer is not as treatable as the Estrogen type. Just goes to show how God played into all of this. My surgeon decided to aspirate a fluid filled cyst and went below the cyst and pulled out some tissue to biopsy. The fact that the spot was so small and he got a piece of the cancerous tissue is amazing to me. I do feel very, very blessed.
I now have to see the radiologist to find out whether they feel I need radiation treatments or not. The full body scan I had before surgery shows that I have a spot on my left hip that I will be having a PET scan in a couple of weeks to assure us it is not cancer. My oncologist does not think it is but wants to be sure. ME TOO! I am also going to have genetic testing in order to inform my children/grandchildren of their risks of this stupid disease.
Anyway... I was really nervous about this visit and everyone was so kind that it went really well. At least now I'm on the pathway to the rest of the story and I pray the path just get better and better.
Gotta go make a card for my granddaughter's 18th birthday tomorrow. Hard to believe she is that old and it will be fun making this card. Hugs to you all!!!
