MRI and Mammo Are Ordered, but my Surgeon does NOT think it's a recurrance!!!!!

My surgeon, a wonderful woman who did my original surgery and who is not "just" a surgeon but a BC specialist, does NOT suspect cancer!! She ordered an MRI and a mammogram, which I think will be done next week ( I need pre-authorization) and, as my Dr says, they will be "tests for exclusion", that is, to rule cancer OUT, rather than confirm a cancer diagnosis! She realizes there is "somthing" wrong~ be it scar tissue, nerve-endings firing, injury to the site from perhaps moving furniture or heavy lifting ( both of which I did) or who knows what. But in her experience,and from the complete exam she did, including lymphnode manipulation and a painful but thorough manual breast exam, she felt NOTHING suspicious!!!! So,although I do not feel 100% out of the woods, believe me, 85% feels Great!

There are truly no word to thank all of you for the outpouring of love, support and prayers all of my Kindred Spirits here gave me. Those words actually haven't been invented yet! I wore the beautiful pink earrings RE made for me, and I felt so close to all of you; you really were with me! The feeling was amazing! I knew that, "even if" the news was not good, I was stronger because I wasn't alone...you were part of my day.

So, instead of going out to dinner, as my appointment was over pretty quickly, actually~ I wanted to go to Jazzercise! So, that's what I did, and Reggie and I are going to have a nice, celebratory dinner here at home, and toast each other with a glass ( or 2!) of wine.

Whew......

Hugs and love and thanks again...you are fabulous!!!
Claudia

    OK - we'll gladly take that 85%, for now. Because it's very soon to be turned into 100% exclusionary!!!

    Aww, Kindred Spirit... THANKS for posting so quickly! :-)

    Phew, sooo relieved. You, too? Reggie, too? (Just kidding!)

    Kind regards, 12/25

    you put on any shower to shower this time before you did jazzercise?Just wanted to know if any (powdered milk)poofs came out while you were getting into it?! You have to admit Claudia-you opened yourself up for that one!
    Glad that your exam went so well-here's hoping that your xrays come back clear with nothing to worry about!!

    Wonderful news, dear Claudia!! Thank you for letting us know asap. I am relieved that your surgeon is so thorough and will take all measures to confirm nothing to fear. The woods are getting farther behind you all the time.

    Hoping you and your warrior Reggie (because HE, too is a warrior, for you and with you) have a peaceful and lovely evening, and restful sleep.

    I just must tell you.I was so happy to hear your sweet voice this morning, I was praying so hard for you. What an inspiration you have always been for me and our siters in pink. I have looked all day to find something saying you are alright, and I am thrilled that you are 85 percent on this. I know you will watch closely and the doctors will take the best of care. I am happy now, and I raise my glass to you and Reggie tonight, my brave an courageous warrior sis. I love you. Jackie

    At the risk of saying "I was right"...
    I was right. But I know all too well the anxiety that comes with every test and every doctor's visit. You handled the ordeal like a champ, Claudia, and I am positive that Reggie did too. This reluctant teetotaler hopes the wine goes down very, very well for the two of you tonight!

    Love,

    85% is good and when all the tests are done and results are in, I am hoping that you get that 100%. Feeling pretty positive about that.
    You are right, we do carry each other with us to appointments, surgeries, etc. Hope we don't get charged for the extra bodies.

    I am so glad that it is nothing
    Claudia, I just got home from a l-o-o-ong day "down below" involving orthodontist, Costco (large quantities of lots of stuff), and back-to-school shopping with daughter, Annie - and just read your post. I am so happy for your 85% good news and will keep the good vibes going until you top 100%. xoxoxo Lynn
