I'm ok, still a bit sore, my chest & under my arm feels a bit tight and uncomfortable. The wound is healing well.
Had appointment with my surgeon Dr. Bochner yesterday. Some of the pathology had come back.
- Invasive ductual cancer
- Grade 3
- One lump was 40mm & the other 10mm
- The breast margins were clear which is a good thing. The cancer hasn’t gone into my chest wall. Not hormonal: no progesterone or estrogen receptors on the cancer so now question is if it is HER2 +'ve or not.
- 3 lymph nodes were removed; 2 lymph nodes were clear. 1 had .3mm deposit of cancer on it -
I’m not requiring any further surgery to go for more lymph nodes… phew! as she believes it had just gone to that lymph & that she has got it all.
I have an appointment on the 16th of August with Oncologist re: starting chemo.
I feel like I have been in a whirlwind… picked up twirled around and spat out again.
