Hi Girls.......
Well, I am going for my surgery tomorrow.  I have Invasive Lobular found by accident in the lumpectomy I had back in March.  Not really worried......what they saw was 1.2 CM, but think it is bigger.....had MRI a week ago, so I guess I will hear about that tomorrow.......I'm having the Sentinal Node biopsy too and that is what scares me.........But, it's just something I have to do......Wish me luck and I leave you with love and hugs.  JANIS

Janis, where do you live? We'll get the PCE (our imaginary plane) fueled up so we can be there with you. I did not have much pain after the SNB, but the range of motion was limited for a while. Even now, 5 years later, I have some tightness when I stretch. Ask the nurse about stretches or exercises to do while you recover, that will help you a lot.

Good luck, and we're all hoping for the best outcome!

I will be there with you praying all be go ok. Tell the surgeon to move over a little bit, it could get really crowded.

Is there someone we have to wait with?  Let your loved one(s) know they will not be alone in that waiting room.  We'll be with you, dear.  I'm praying!!!

I live in Monroe, NC......(near Charlotte) It is 11:24 PM right now and I have to get up at 4:00 A.M. and leave by 5:00 to get there at 6:00, but I am feeling a little anxious......oh well, I'm sure I will get more sleep after I get there (ha)...........At least I am first on my Surgeon's agenda, so at least he should be bright eyed and bushy tailed !!!
I'll be waiting to feel those pink feathers...........

God Bless You All and you will hear from me soon........

Janis, I will be there with all the rest. We get pretty noisy, but we'll try to behave. I am praying for all to go very well, and NEG nodes. Hang in there sweetie. L&H, Gail

Atta girl Janis, bright eyed, bushy tailed surgeons are the best!!!!! We were there cheering him on. I hope he appreciated all of our help. I will keep you in my prayers that the SNB found no positive nodes and that the cancer is early and easily treated. Hugs MK
