I had called the nurse at my surgeons office earlier to talk about how I am still soooo congested in my lungs from the anesthesia, and my throat still hurts from the intubation and asked if I should be concerned. She said she would talk to the dr about it and call me back.
Well she called back to say just keep taking Mucinex, and as long as Im not running fever I(Im not) and not bringing up green gunk (Im not), its ok.
But THEN the good news came.. she said, listen your pathology came back and I can only tell you this because of what it said,
The report was:
Margins free of tumor, sentinel node negative of any cancer, additional 2 nodes removed also negative of cancer
What she said, was that this is very good news, does not indicate any addtional node removal surgery or mastectomy at this time.
Im still feeling pretty beat up, but that news was good to hear, instead of waiting till my follow up next week.
Does not change my need to endure chemo, but for now, Im taking it as good news..
