My Mom's CT Scan

My mom had breast cancer 6.5 years ago. Had full masectomy, node negative, 6 treatments of chemo. From what I can gether she was er-. Was told that tamoxifin was not helpful for her type of early state breast cancer. Went every 3 months for follow-up for first 4 years and the last 2 years was 6 mos and 1 year. All blood work was normal. Bone scans, mammograms and chest x-ray was all normal. Now 6.5 years later, she is having a ct scan by her primary doctor for a patch of fluid build under her right breast area (same side as masectomy). Her oncologist told her to follow up with her G.P. I'm freaking out thinking it is liver mets. She has no discomfort and does not hurt. I guess I just need prayers for her test to come back all clear.

    Prayers sent...don't react until the facts are in!

    Where are you getting liver mets from? Was this ever a thought 6 years ago? Fluid buildup is a bit different than that...wait and see..

    Hugs, kathi

    The Dr.'s office just called. My mom's ct scan showed that she has gallstones. Never in my life did I think that gallstones would turn out to be a blessing. She goes Monday to see the surgeon about having them removed. Please keep the prayers going!
