The results are IN!!! Yes, they are in! I knew who was calling when my phone rang. So are you wanting to know the results? Are you sure now? Should I hold off a bit more and maybe blog about it later?!?!?! Hmmmm.........ok, ok! I better just tell you all before one of my friends come to my house and strangle the news out of me. Drum Roll Please ...................... They will be Taking my BOOB!!! I repeat they will be taking the boob, nipple and all, lol. Yes I am serious they are going to take the breast. They saw that my right breast was fine, thank goodness. They noticed that my lymph nodes in my arm pits are larger than normal. The Dr. said that when Breast Cancer spreads it spreads in the armpit and that shows up as large lymph nodes. So THIS LADY (ME) has to go in for ANOTHER biopsy, lets see what number is that, ahhhhhh.....the 4th biopsy I believe. So I need to get that biopsy done to see if the cancer has spread. I won't get to hear about an appointment for the armpit biopsy til MAYBE Wednesday when the radiologist is there to view the MRI images.
The Dr. is very concerned about my nipple portion. They were not able to biopsy the nipple. So the Dr aka Surgeon will be taking my breast AND my nipple!! How dare she take me nipple, lol. Yes I am having fun with this. Its a way for me to handle all of this. On the plus side I can get a new bewb!! Woot woot!! So a lumpectomy is out of the question because more than 50% of my breast tissue will be take and she wouldn't leave the nipple either. I figured it would either be a lumpectomy or a mastectomy that would happen. Am I surprised about the results for the mastectomy? No, I am not. Just by feeling the lumps I figured that that would have to have happened. I would rather them take the whole breast if it means that the cancer is gone. Now I just need to know if the cancer spread to the lymph nodes or not.
So on Friday I have my Oncology appointment with a NEW Dr. My mom will go there with me so all the information won't go in one ear and out the other. So we will have questions of course. He will tell us the course of action for treatment. I do not know what stage the cancer is but I do know that my breast will be removed. I will be one boobed Jack! LOL!! I am sorry but I am happy that I have Breast Cancer of all cancers out there. I have to be happy because there is no other way to be. I know my outlook may sound weird but I am grabbing this Cancer Beast by the horns and riding it out of my body!! One way or another it will be out of me!! I would rather lose the boob than my life or anything else. I know that I will have more psychological issues but I rather it be that than anything else. My psychological issues would be due to the boob being gone but I will find a way to get my boob back lol.
But they are taking my boob. At least I know that is one course of my treatment. Friday I will know more information about Chemo and radiation therapy. Oh and on a Side note to people out there...... I AM NOT DYING!! I just have Breast Cancer! Yes, it's serious but that doesn't make me on my death bed. My family and friend are the best! I have THEE BEST PEOPLE in my life!! The band and support of family, friends and strangers is just amazing.
I will let you all know more once Friday comes around and of course I will blog before that.
