Hi I am new to FtF but not new to Breast cancer. Until April 8 I had been a 7 year survivor of IDC and IDCS. But I have a recurrence, of my grade 3 cancer. At this time they think it is only 1 ct and located in my lumpectomy scar. I have had a MRI that shows another area near the tumor that they dont want to biopsy, I had an enlarged node on my right side that biopsy was negitive on. and a negitive bone scan, I had a CT yesterday that I will get results on Friday along with my tumor marker and ovarian cancer results. I am looking at massectomy, reconstruction and possible chemo again. I am the only one working my husband has been off almost 4 years, so I am so concerned how I will pay for all of this. I worked thru dose dense chemo the first time, but I am older now. I am just so scared...View Thread
