can anyone tell me if before you are offically DX w/ BC, did any of the blood work come back negative and if so what was it that came back abnormal in any prelimary testing.
did anyone have any axulliary (armpit) involvement w/ lymph nodes?
i had an mri done on my left shoulder ( for torn rotator cuff and as a side note the radiologist noted in the report that i had some axuliary changes noted but that they were probably benign. this was in july 04.
i had an mammo done the following month which came back ok from what i could remember. have not had one since then. i know i know , i need to have it done again.
i have had a mammo every year since 40 yrs old and am now 50. been on combipatch hrt for 8 yrs now and will not go off it. maybe i need to ramp down on the amount but cant trade quality of life over hot flashes and night sweats and insane mood swings.
now as i look in the mirror, the left side of under my armpit as i hold up my arms in the air, left side looks larger under armpit and alittle tender there as well.
guess i got to get to the ob/gyn soon for a repeat. but i figured sicne i gone this long with mammo every yr since 40 that i would be okay and not have to worry so much about this anymore....
