So the biopsy came back sooner than anticipated. There are three lumps in my left breast… all cancer. Since the one they didn’t find until the MRI and biopsied yesterday is more than 10 cm from the other ones… lumpectomy is no longer an option.
I’m having a mastectomy. Who the hell has space for tumors that cover 14 cm within one breast? This girl.
Today I’ve been setting up a lot of appointments. Meeting a plastic surgeon next Tue. Final pre-consult with my surgical oncologist on 8/13. Then I got the update, and I got to make my appointment.
The very nice lady who does my surgeon’s scheduling came back and said the first time the plastic surgeon was available is 8/29. I pointed out that with a KI67 of 60%, I’d really like to get in sooner. So she checked to see what she could do… and I’ll have a final date tomorrow- it will be sooner, which is great.
On a random but cool note, check out my comment from “Superglued Boob,” it’s from a woman in Norway, whose NAME IS NINJA, and is also going through almost the exact same timeline as I am… she’s even 37 too. So welcome to you Ninja from here in Seattle. Hopefully we will BOTH kick some breast cancer ass!
