Its been a roller-coaster the last few days. My lymph nodesbiopsy results on Tuesday confirmed 100% breast cancer, which also means the lungs are positive too. I was very upset to hear this news, even though I thought I'd fully prepared myself for this diagnosis. I hadn't realised the extent of the hope I'd had to be in the 1% chance of a negative result.
Well I survived the biopsy on 26th October! Specimens were taken from the slightly enlarged lymph nodes inbetween my lungs and apparently the procedure went well. I am left with bruising, soreness and no doubt a scar across my neck. The nurses call it the "cut throat procedure"...nice one...thanks for that! LOL! Now I am waiting patiently, again, for the results and a treatment plan. They are due on Tuesday 1st November. I was told to stop the Tamoxifen (as it's obviously not working) and I very obligingly threw it in the bin the other day...GEEZ that felt good!
