To everyone who was so kind to respond to me previous posts, I thought I would update all of you.
I saw my surgeon yesterday for a post op checkup. Surgery was last week, and the pathology came back with clear borders and no lymph node involvement! I can't tell you how happy we are. Now, they will do the oncatype testing on the tumor to check for possible chemotherapy as an option. My surgeon seems pretty confident that it will be 'low', and not particularly responsive to chemo, as that is the common result for ILC.
So, I will see the oncologist to get those results (hopefully in a couple of weeks). If we don't need to discuss chemotherapy, I will then see the radiation oncologist to set up a schedule of treatments. After radiation is complete, I will be given an aromatase inhibitor to use once daily, for 5 years.
So, I still have a little bit ahead of me. Thank you to everyone for your help. I am healing well, and grateful to have had such a good pathology report. Taking one day at a time, and feeling very BLESSED!
(((HUGS))) and Prayers to you all!
