I wrote earlier asking for help with my diagnosis of BC (infiltrating ductal carcinoma, Ductal Carcinoma in-situ in my breast as well as metastatic adnocarcinoma in my lymph) The good news is so far they believe it is only in one lymph. That I have to believe is good news and that the lymph is not embedded and moves easily.
I was diagnosed on Friday at 3:30 pm and had an appointment with a surgeon on Monday. She was wonderful and spent 2 hours with my husband, myself and my mother explaining how things work in this scary new world. I now have an appointment with Sloan Kettering in NYC for the 26th. The doctor I have an appointment with did surgery on another person that my mother knows and was very pleased.
The weekend, right after diagnosis, is so scary. Don't get me wrong, I am scared of the scans I will have to do, if something is found somewhere else, but, I at least feel a little more in control.
Thank you for all your great advice. I had a list typed up of questions and have had quite an education over the past 5 days.
Has anyone else gone to Sloan? What was your experience?
Thank you for also letting me know you will be there to help me on my journey.
