Haven't been back for awhile because turn of events went very fast...after my diagnosis of invasive ductal carcinoma was confirmed, I had surgery last Sept.27th (lumpectomy with sentinel node biopsy, needle loc and axillary node dissection) Today, I had my first appointment with my doc, and it was great news, margins are clear and all lymph nodes clear( had 2 nodes dissected but came out negative)... So we kicked the hell out of it! Now I am concentrating on getting physically better. Radiation to follow and still don't know if I need chemo, I will see my oncologist this coming week. But whatever it's gonna be, I am ready,At least I could breath much better now!.If I will need chemo, my surgeon said its an insurance that the cancer will not come back in the future..Its been a hell but God be the glory and I came out a stronger person!
