So, it’s official. I have stage two breast cancer. It could definitely be worse, right? I’m counting my blessings. 🙂
The largest lump is 3 cm x 2.2 cm x 2 cm. The cancer had spread to the sentinel lymph node and to two additional lymph nodes for a total of 3 lymph nodes that are cancerous out of the 10 that were removed and biopsied. I met with the general surgeon yesterday who explained the results of the pathology reports and how the staging works.
Today was a day off from everything in which I was supposed to pick my radiology oncologist and medical oncologist. And…I was a lazy bum and didn’t do it. Maybe later tonight. We shall see.
I’m still hurting, having trouble sleeping and super annoyed with the drains. I can’t wait for them to come out tomorrow!! Apparently, the plastic surgeon will take them out. I’m really looking forward to this appointment.
I have only showered twice since the Monday before the surgery. My hubby washed my hair for me on Friday after the surgery and I had taken a sponge bath at some point after the surgery but by Sunday, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I really needed a nice hot shower. I kept it short but it was soooo nice.
