Surgery date set
Just wanted to quickly update you all… I will be going in for a lumpectomy at the end of next week. At this point it is only DCSI, which is described as contained cancer. To know for sure the whole scope of things they will open me up next week, then have a clear cut pathology report to go by in regards to treatment and the next steps. I am good with this, when asked about a mastectomy next week, though I thought I was ready I am really not. This will give me better answers. I can then move forward with a bilateral mastectomy if I want down the road. At this time, lumpectomy then I will meet with my oncologist (cancer doctor) to get a treatment plan in place after the findings. If it is only DCSI, with clean margins after surgery, radiation will be followed and then I will be put on a drug called Tomoxifin. So bottom line at this point is surgery, the surgeon needs to see what exactly is going on.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I am feeling great actually, of course waves of emotion hits me at times, but overall I still feel like me! Will keep you posted, but in waiting mode again until after surgery.
