Grace, call the surgeon and see what they can do. There is nothing to loose and ask for a cancellation if possible and be ready to go on a moment's notice.
I was 58 years old, in excellent health, and had a mastectomy Dec 21, 2004. Tumor was 2 cm at its largest width, but I had 5 of 16 positive lymph nodes. Underwent 4 Adriamycin/Cytoxan chemo, 12 weekly Taxol and 36 Radiation treatments. I was probably the healthiest cancer patient they had ever seen. Only a little nausea, no aches, some fatigue at the end of the last 2 Taxol treatments, about 3 days of vomiting on Arimidex, and that is it. I feel good -- just got my first haircut since January. I have a sister with BC diagnosed 6 1/2 years ago, doing well, however, my aunt died of breast cancer.
We're here for you and just remember, you have not been diagnosed yet. 80% of all biopsies are negative and the hardest part of all is WAITING!!!!!
Stay with us, call the doctor and let us hear from you.
