mamo, ultrasound, mri and biopsy negative for cancer. I insisted on prophylactic mastectomy in July 2017. Cancer found in right breast. NOTE: Don't let doctors bully you. Follow your gut feelings.
ALSO: Not doing reconstructive surgery. The risk of infection and clotting is high for any cancer sufferer - also makes finding future cancer harder. Not worth the pain and too many times the results are painful and not too pretty.
Also - power port problem. Got blood infection and blood clot from port for chemo. Found out that 62 percent of women who have a port get a clot. Would have loved to have known that in the first place. Ports are not a good thing. Avoid them if you can.

Diagnosis: Invasive Lobular Cancer; stage 2a, 0 nodes, er+, pr+, grade 2, mitosis rate "low", Chemo 4 rounds of T&C, currently on exemestane for 10 years. Bone scan showed no signs of cancer.
We shall see how it goes. Depends if I still have insurance.
