Found one lump in each breast last year, and had three swollen lymph under the arm. Had bilateral mammogram and US of right lump only (do not know why doc ordered this way). Took results to surgeon, who said there was nothing,the lymph nodes were just fat under my arm. TOld doc my mom's sister had been dx at 35 yrs, and about
54 years on other side. Surgeon said if I was worried, I should order an US in 6 moths. Got pregnant in January, at first prenatal visit pointed out lumps to new OB/GYN, then had bilateral US, mammogram, and then three different biopsies to get diagnosed.
Left side Stage IIIC, er/pr -, invasive ductal, one lump about
5cm, two other areas of concern, "peau d'orange" skin/nipple, poorly differentiated, fixed lymph and supraclavical met
Right side Stage II, er/pr-, invasive ductal, one lump about
5cm, one other area of concern, poorly differntiated, two or three abnormal lymph
Keith and I have a son , Nicholas 5 1/2 years old and a daughter Natalie, almost 4 years old. They are very excited about
their baby sister, and pester me about
who's room she'll sleep in and when is she coming out?
Treatment so far has been four cycles AC, four cycles taxotere, upcoming bilateral masectomy w/lymph node removal, then maybe more AC, then radiation.
