Less than a month ago, on February 12, I received the breast cancer diagnosis. I suddenly was on the superfast journey – doctors, treatment, biopsy, surgery, ultra sounds, hospitals – name it and I had it done
Today I received the pathology results after the lumpectomy and lymph node biopsy: they removed 3 lymph nodes and the lump. No cancer in the lymph nodes and they managed to remove the lump with clear margins!!!!!!!! It’s out, it is gone – no more cancer cells in my body
I had this huge headache when I walked into the surgeon’s rooms, a whole hour too early for my appointment because I simply couldn’t wait at home any longer. He was amazing and called me in quickly……..and gave the good news which is so wonderful and I am so happy
He did an ultra-sound of the lump under my arm but said it is not necessary to drain it (seroma) and to take painkillers for the pain. But the wound is healing beautifully – and I can see it under the glue, it is only going to be a very thin little line soon
Radiation is waiting, but according to the surgeon it is going to be a walk in the park after the past month. Bring it on, I am ready!
