It's me again, "first IDC now SCC" I had my follow up after surgery appt today. My surgeon told me my margins weren't clear on two place on my lip. One being close to surface, the other inside. She said she was going to talk to my team tonight at the tumor board meeting and is hopng my rad onc thinks he can kill the rest with the 36 rad treatments I will be starting soon. If not, I will have to have another surgery. I sure hope not, she did a really good job on my lip but if she has to remove more I won't have such good results.
She also told me to prepare for chemo again, they are as sure as they can be before my lung biopsy that the nodules are cancer. Okay, just finished chemo 4 months ago, but I will do what I have to do. They are also certian it's my breast cancer in my lungs not the SCC. My surgeon said my rad onc was right, I am just a weird case:) Me I am going to keep hoping it isn't until my path report says it is!
So I go back next Monday to get my stiches out and to find out if there will be a second surgery on my mouth. Thanks all for all of your help and support:)
