Mi historia

Thank you so much for visiting my page!!

Diagnosed Feb 14 2011. Surgeries March, April & May 2011.  Started T/C/H chemo July 20, 2011.Chemo stopped due to heart failure September, 2011 Restarted Chemo Oct 12th 2011 Started 6 months of Herceptin Infusion Jan 2012 Finished chemo in July 2012  Diagnosed with Heart Failure 60%   March 2013 Port removal surgery. Heart Failure Progresed to 65%  Need Defibulator implanted when strong enough.

 



I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer on February 14, 2011.  I have been struggling for the last 2-3 years with Rheumatoid Arthritis and depression.  

  I was initially told in Feb that it was a very very small cancer, about the size of a pencil eraser and that lumpctomy and sentanal lymph node biopsy was the way to go.  I had that surgery in March and was told immediately after that everything was fine and that my lymph was clear, but 2 days later was told that the margins werent clear and that there was cancer in the sent node. 

I was told another lumpctomy would take care of it, there was a delay scheduling that and after I finally got that one in April there were 8 more areas of cancer.  Although I was told I could have another lumpctomy I  decided to have a double mastectomy with reconstruction on May 17 at Baylor Dallas.  This was followed by chemo at the Sammons Cancer Center.   I planned to have TRAM Flap reconstruction by Dr Jason Potter at Baylor Dallas.  I am taking Tamoxafin for 5 years. 

Dr Jeffrey Schussler at Heart Place Dallas says my heart failure has now progressed to severe and there is no hope for reversal or getting better.  He says I could die any day and I will have to learn to live with it.

Thank you so much for your prayers and moral support during this difficult time most especially for my parents and children.
