It has been one crazy week…to be followed by an even crazier one, I’m sure.
On Wednesday, I had two additional biopsies on the same breast due to the results of the MRI. These resulted in a different kind of cancer: Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma. What the crap!! Two different kinds of cancer in one breast. So not fair. Unfortunately, this confirms that I will have a mastectomy.
When I met with the surgeon on Thursday, he didn’t have the results from the biopsies yet. He said he wouldn’t call me until Monday with the results. I started to have anxiety Friday morning so I called my Care Coordinator to see if she would be able to provide the results, which she did…thankfully. I mostly just heard “cancer” and knew right away what that would mean surgically.
My surgery is currently scheduled for Friday, February 28th. However, I meet with the plastic surgeon on Monday…so plans may change. Quite frankly, I like the sound of March 7th better. I’m not sure why. [shrug]
Onward and upward, as they say.
