Re: Need some prayer

We had my surgery consult today at 2. Four hours, 3 doctors, and 2 nurses later, we have decided I'll do the full mastectomy and reconstruction. Between the BRCA and the high risk marker they found in the one biopsy, my risk of breast cancer is now 80-90%. Surgery is my only choice (which I had pret...

I have my surgery consult on Feb. 14th, with both the regular surgeon and the plastic surgeon to figure out my options.

Re: Need some prayer

I've known that I'm high risk for breast and ovarian cancer since 2011, after my sister's second round of breast cancer. It's why I get checked twice a year, once mammogram, once MRI. This is the first time they've seen anything of concern. So, now I wait to talk to the surgeon to figure out our opt...

Re: Need some prayer

As I posted, I got the results from the first one yesterday, where I was told it was pre-cancerous and would need surgery. I spoke with my doctor earlier today, and she had the results from the 2nd biopsy - which was clear. However, I was given incorrect information for the 1st biopsy. It's not actu...

Re: Need some prayer

Hi, I got my left side biopsy results. It's a pre-cancerous something-or-other. It means surgery to remove the area, before it turns into cancer. It's high risk to become cancer in 1-10 years. They are going to call soon to schedule an appointment with the surgeon to discuss everything in more detai...

Re: When did you join?

Shann, it's fun to hear about what your family was doing at the time you joined. Shari, it seems I remember you reading challenge entries while you were nursing Josh. How fun about the 5/27 date for your Birthdays Remembered piece and Jolynn's birthday. Yup - I did a lot more reading when he was li...

Re: When did you join?

May of 2005, my first challenge entry was on 5/27/05. Ironically, Jolynn was born on 5/27/10 and my first entry was titled Birthdays Remembered lol. I had begun looking for freelance writing opportunities to supplement our income after Josh was born in December. I did start getting some paid work, b...

Re: Need some prayer

The breast ultrasound was inconclusive, so I'll have to do the MRI biopsy. I have to schedule on two different days because of the contrast. One is on Jan 29th and the other on 31st, both at 10 am. I kind of feel like the ultrasound was unnecessary, since it didn't see anything and I still have to h...

I get it. Praying.
What time is the ultrasound (and what time zone are you in these days)?

Re: Need some prayer

Thanks. I have the ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow as the next step. I'm doing mostly ok, and trying to not worry yet. But it's hard :(. It kind of comes in waves.
