bad news about my cancer

I haven't been on for a while I just haven't felt well, and no good news. This is what the surgeon told us. This is my home health aid typying this for me.

    Jerry went to see the plastic surgeon yesterday. He said that to do the surgery he would have to make a large hole and deep and take a large section of muscle from her back, and a large portion from her remaining breast..he said that due to Jerry current health there would be a good chance for her dying on the operating table..and if everything went well she would spend weeks, or months in the hospital recovering and her pain level would ramp up to a level that her quality of life would be greatly affected..there would also be a big possibility that the wound area which would be a large covered hole in her chest would never heal properly..so in the end its up to her what she should do..the doctor said there's no guarantee that doing the surgery would prolong the cancer or not doing it would prolong it..there are just too many unknowns with this cancer..the thing about doing the surgery that is true is that its a massive operation that has the real possibility of killing her during the surgery or afterward. So the next step is to go back to the oncologist and the breast surgeon and make the decision for or against chemo and or what the next steps will be There has ben more cancer show up on her chest. She needs your prayers as she goes to the oncologist doctor tomorrow. God Bless. She will try and be on tomorrow.

Not an easy decision.  Praying that there will be another option, a miracle for you.

Wishing you the best in whatever you decide.It's a very hard decision but after your appt you'll know more.

Why do things have to be so complicated??? I haven't been down that road but I worry someday it could happen to me.

Thoughts and Prayers to you and your family.
