I was just diagnosed 2 weeks ago with DCIS..... I never felt a lump, and was sent for my first mammogram. Within 2 weeks, my world as I knew it has been tossed upside down and inside out. I went from a baseline Mammogram, to an ultra sound, followed by a Core Biopsy. a week later I get a call from my doctor stating that it's DCIS. 2 days later I'm at the Surgeon and Oncologist's office,and on Tuesday,I will be undergoing a Lumpectomy. my surgeon didn't give much details as to what to expect, or what to wear to the hospital.. and the worst part is my Ins.Co. is trying to refuse coverage because I'm too young(34), yet the person on the phone had nothing to say when I asked her, "since when does cancer care what age you are?" My Surgeon and Oncologist said I will have some sort of Device put in, just incase my Margins dont come back Clear, so they will begin Radiation therapy.
So if anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it.... As I'm Nervous and Scared...
