well, I finally have been scheduled for the masectomy.
Just another hurdle and I hope it will be the last...lolol
I will have a masectomy on my left breast ( but hey, i get my first tattoo lololol)
Since I will be having a total masectomy on the left breast I probly will not have to have radiation...the chemo thing is still out until after surgery.
1 lump is cancer the other isn't and the jury is still out on the third, But they figued since there are so many lumps a masectomy is the best treatment, and with my health history they do not want to leave anything that may cause problems later on.
I am scard, BUT anxious to get it over has been the longest 5 weeks of my life..the wait is awful.
I have an awsome plastic surgeon, and he will begin his work as soon as the cancer doc is finished with hers.
So I am going to have 2 new boobies lololol....HAVE TO LOOK AT THE POSITIVE.

all the best wishes to you. by the way, I was at a party and saw a woman (who also has crohns) and had two, GORGEOUS new boobs after a double mastectomy. big hug, yp
48 y/o woman.  Diagnosed 4/06 after colonscopy, SBFT, CT-scan all showed crohns. 3 months later, after pred and remicade, all tests showed no crohns. In December had adhesions cut through a laparoscopy. Now just taking Glycolax, metamucil, and with pain, but doing ok.

I'm sorry you're going through this, but I'm sure you'll be glad to get it behind you. And perky new breasts will be nice. May God watch over you.
