I saw my new doc at UIC today, I go for a CT scan on Tuesday then I see her again and a rad onco on March 16. She's hoping to be able to try just radiation treatment due to the fact that surgery can be disfiguring....I will find out on the 16th if it will just be radiation or surgery and radiation. I really like my new Dr. she wants to try and do everything to kill the cancer and keep my face as normal as possible. I am not going to get my hopes up about no surgery but at least its a possiblity:)
She took pictures of my chin and lip, she's at the top of her field and has never seen another case like mine. They are thinking that the IDC and treatment has something to do with it. She told me that she will research it till she can show me I am not alone:)
Thanks everyone for all your support, it means so very much to me. I am hoping to be able to start tamoxifen as well, I don't want IDC to come back because treatment for my breast cancer was put on hold because of this new cancer. I so hate cancer!
