I had found a lump in my left breast and went to get it checked by my primary. She wanted me to get a mammogram and ultrasound. So I did. A few days later I was called in to do a biopsy which took 10 days for them to get the results for. It was to scanty for them to tell the grade or the receptor on it but they could tell it was infiltrating ductal carcinoma.
My primary called me in to give me the diagnoses. And she sent me directly to a breast specialist. The breast specialist looked at the mammogram and noticed something on the right as well so she sent me to do an MRI. The MRI came back with masses on the right breast as well so I went and had a biopsy done on that breast those results came back the next day as stage1 grade 9 invasive ductal carcinoma.
Friday I had my mastectomies and I'm now at home resting. My family is taking really good care of me. All of my lymph nodes came back negative thank goodness. I'm waiting for oxtin dx (spelling) test to come back
My mothers and all her sisters never had to do chemo so I'm wondering what I'm in for as far as treatment goes. Anyone here with the same diagnoses I won't know for 10 days and it's driving me nuts.
Also does anyone know whether or not the insurance company can get ur medical records without u first signing a release
