Please, I would appreciate your prayers, thank you. I know the chemo and radiation will make me better so that gives me strength.
the horrible thing about breast cancer is you do not have symptoms. I went for a regular mammogram and it was found. My right nipple was inverted and the techs asked how long did I have not, I did not notice so I could not tell them. That was the only sign.
My recommendation is to get a mammogram. I then had an ultra sound and a bisopy and the cancer was confirmed.View Thread
Found out yesterday in right breast 2 out of 4 nodes were cancer, left breast was clean. 0 out of 4. So I need chemo since right tumor was 7 cm while the left was 3 cm. So need to see the radiation doctor and my onologist sometime next week.
Good news about the left, good news the drains were taken out yesterday as well! I can showerView Thread
Thank you everyone for your prayers, thoughts and good advise. I got home on wednesday. I was calm when I left here monday morning and I knew she would make me better.
In the operating room when they had me on the table I closed my eyes and my doctor said are you mediating or getting to tell us a joke. I said I am tired I got up at 5:30 a.m. she said me too and I said you need to be awake. That is the last I remember of Monday. Tuesday was a little clearer.
I am been feeling good and had a problem today when i took my regular meds with no food. Other than that no problems excepting sleeping. I sleep on my side so Wednesday night I sat on the couch and got 8 hours of sleep, not bad.
Thanks everyone for everyone, you guys were greatView Thread

It's a few more days until the 22nd and my surgery is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. So glad the surgery will be done and the cancer out of me. I'm calm right now let's hope I am like that when I walk into the hospitalView Thread
Thank you Rachael. I will definitely do the breathing in and out. I can think about being cancer-free and the things that make me happy. I already know what those things will be.
When I started to get anxious this is the first place I thought to go for advice. You ladies never let me down.
I will keep you all posted on my surgery and let you know how I am doing.
I'm working with a person on my post op garments and yesterday she mentioned to me that her office on the 20th is doing a walk and they all had to pick someone to dedicate the walk to and she chose me. It bought tears to my eyes because this is a person I just met. Another friend of mine said things to me yesterday that touched my heart. It was a very emotional day.View Thread
I have been thinking in order to get well I need the surgery and that makes me feel better. I also tell myself the only way to get rid of the cancer is to have the surgery. When I do get nervous I just keep repeating these things to myself. I have an appointment with my doctor on monday to get some medication to help me relax. The last time surgery was scheduled I had a mini stroke, no side effects from that and I think that could happen again a week from surgery I'm on meds for that so I am okay, but stress is something that is overwhelming at times.View Thread
