I would like to find out if what is going on with me is typical, and that this is what happens in the steps my docs and myself are doing right.
I was currently on humira for "crohns disease"
Actually as of yesterday......Went to the gyny, she felt a lump in the left breast, I have ha small cysts removed in the doc office that turned out to be nothing.....this lump, I assume is different, for she is sending me to the surgeon right away.
I also have a lump under my arm pit.
I am scard, on top of the Crohns I alo have had a benign brain tumor and tyroid cancer.
anyhow, on Monday I have to have a 3 D mammo..( I have no idea, what the difference is) I assume it is better or more reliable then a regular mammogram.
On Tuesday I meet with the surgeon.
I guess they ae going to remove it, do a biopsy and go from there.
will I have to be hospitalized for the removal???????
How long will I have to wait for biopsy results?????
And on top of all of this the Humira was working so well for the Crohns disease, for the first time in 7 years I am off prednisone......and was feeling so much better.
Now, I have to quit the pred., go through this and at the end of the month have a pelvic ultra sound for a hystorectomy....which they would never do before now becasue of all the scar tissue from prior belly and intestinal surgeries.
but they said since this lump has appeared, it is best to have everyhting taken out...
I am so scard, becasue of the un-know I guess....
any info would help!!!!!!!!!
