I saw the BS today and he repeated that he will try a lumpectomy, but although the lumps have shrunk, there were 3 and he had to get clear margins...which makes for quite a deformed leftover breast. He said I am on the borderline mastectomy. So, he is going to try and we will find out 4-5 days after if it was successful or if I need a mastectomy. I am taking it one day at a time.
Did everyone know how they get those nodes? They inject you with radioactive dye which goes right to the nodes which maps out where they are and they get them with a geiger counter!!! hahaha...ok, not funny...but that sounds so odd to me.
Ok, no one told me about "wires" that the radiologist puts in the breast to guide the surgeon. Anyone know about that? OY! I hope they give me some pain meds (AND A STINKIN' BLINDFOLD!)
Love my sisters in pink,
