Ok, I went to the doc yesterday and from the MRI, talking with her and my husband, I am going to have a masectomy done on my right breast with reconstruction right after.
The skin doesn't want to move around the lump, so she thinks it may be attached, so the nipple and all would have to go anyway. I would rather they just take it all and hopefully and cancer cells with it and I can move foreward with this. I go in on the 9th to talk to the plastic surgeon and then the two docs will get a time together to get this all done.
I'm nervous about the whole thing, and not thrilled about loosing my breast, but I feel like it's the best choice for me and my family. I have no idea what kind of treatment I will have to have afterwards, hopefully my lymph nodes will come out clean.
