Hello everyone and I am back again after being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. I was diagnosised with Breast Cancer in 2007 having stage 1 and now it is back . I left my Breast Care Specialist Wednesday, July 31st.The awful news was given to me prior to a biopsy that was done a couple of day.
Two weeks ago I found found another lump in my left breast. I also was having some very sharp pain that resembles the pain I had when I first was diagnosised with breast cancer. I call and scheduled an appointment with my Specialist. After seeing her we both thought that it was just scared tissue. I didn't think that you could get breast cancer twice in the same breast after having a mastectomy. After the mastectomy a tissue expander was placed. Just over a year agoIi had the tissue expander removed and the implant was inserted.
I am beginning to wonder how long had the tumar been there and was it there when the implant was inserted. Did my Specialst send a tissue sample away to have it check? Thinking back I had an appointment with my Oncologistabout 3 months ago and he said that i was doing good. Shouldn't it had showed up in my blood results.
My specialist shoud be calling me today with my appointments. She want me to have a MRI, see a Radiation Specialist and to see my Oncologist. I am wondering should i replace my doctors with someone else or should I stick with the same one.
i am requesting your advice or opinions.
