I e-mailed my doctor with this question
she said that..if it is cancer, then they will have to remove the lump but will also have to remove the "margin"
And lymph nodes.
If it is not cancer they will just remove the lump....but they do not want to have to go in 2 times.
So the core needle biopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
Mri on Monday.
Yes, life is un-fair sometimes, I know what I have to do if it is cancer....I am just tierd...tierd of being sick and tierd, esp when I was finally starting to feel better using Humira for the Crohns disease made such a difference in my quality of life.I felt like a new person....Now this. It's like as soon as I beat one thing, another is right there in my face.... like, not so fast missy.
But, like my mom says grab your boot straps and get ready to fight like I always have.
IT's just hard...people keep telling me to get my mind off it until monday...to have a good week-end and forget it.
that is NOT so easy. Esp, when I have this darn pain in my back right where the lump is in front...it is the same location of where the lump is but in my back..and a constant reminder. Plus all these crazy things are going through my mind, like maybe it has spread to my back or lungs....I know I have to stop thinking like this...AND God knows I am trying.

What you may think makes you weak...in fact makes you STRONG!!
