The Club No One Wants to Join.....
It was a relief to learn that I could expect only a lumpectomy, radiation and tamoxifen. While a relief, it was still a shock and it's taken a couple of days to absorb the information, make appointments with all my new doctors and figure an easy for everyone way to keep everyone in the loop. This blog should do it.
This morning we met with my surgeon and was blown away by by how amazing the entire office was, let alone the surgeon herself. We had a thorough explanation of my situation and how to proceed.
Monday we'll do a contrast MRI. Tuesday we meet my oncologist. Shortly after that we'll have a quick visit where I will get a radiation seed implanted which will help guide the surgeon to the lump. I have been assured my left breast will not glow from said radiation.
I'll let you know for sure in my next post.
