I received a phone call from the rads. he said that he met with the onco., and surgeon to go over my pathology report and found that the type of cancer I had has a 30-40% chance of recurrence even with radiation. Now they want to do a mastectomy. How did they not know that when I met with the surgeon on Friday? The surgeon did say that they may want to go in and take out a little more tissue because they fund a few more spots in the duct but got it all. How did we go from a "little more tissue" to a mastectomy? What changed in the pathology report that wasn't there after the surgery? I guess I'm just a little freaked out. I was told that everything looked great, my hormones are estrogen positive and my her2nu is negative. The tumor was only stage 1. All I had left to do was chemo and radiation then take the pill for 5 years and I had a 3-4% chance of recurrence. How did it go from 3-4% chance to 30-40%? Guess I have to wait to talk with the surgeon again. Sigh!
