I'd call either the surgeon or PCP. The onc treats cancer with chemo, and he is not likely to be the breast specialist. The surgeon would be better suited to know breast conditions, or even the rad onc.
Hang in there,
I'm heading in to see my onc first thing in the morning. Bad thing is I just started a new job at a new local department store working the door as a greeter/credit pusher and I need to be there an hour later. The job is temp. but I was getting bored and poor sitting at home. This has got me all messed up. I didn't think too much of it until this afternoon when the nurse I talked to at the onc. office said she would get me in right away. I was pretty non-chalant about it until she did that. Then I did some searching online and found the inevitable BC stuff. I'm only a seven month survivor how do I end up having 2 more scares in that time? I need the PCE tomorrow ladies at 8:45 in Wooster, oh.
Thanks and hugs,
Sorry I didn't post an update Tuesday after I saw the doctor. I went straight to work after and then had a funeral that evening. Yesterday was filled with getting my son and step son registered at our local career center for their last 2 years of high school.
So the doc said it is an infection and pretty bad too. Her words were that the breast tissue will go through a lot of changes in the year following rads. She said I was smart to get in there when I did and she put me on a strong antibiotic (don't remember the name right now). She also said I would not feel good for a few days and she is right. I am worn out and weak. I can barely stay awake for 3 or 4 hours without getting so sleepy I can't see straight. Right now I am getting ready to go to work this evening and I hope if I drink lots of coffee I can stay alert.
Thanks for being here for me yet again. Does this never end?
