If you've made it to this page, then you've made it to a extraordinary personal part of my life. It's amazing how a simple word can make such a huge impact on your life.
I remember hearing the words, "you have cancer and it's an aggressive cancer." I just felt so numb. Thinking to myself if I don't acknowledge it, maybe it would go away. But that didn't happen. She said promisingly that the five year treatment pill would be enough. A week later the rest of my blood work came back. I'm now triple negative . Now I'm not able to try any of the other treatment plans. Since my cancer is not estrogen driven my only option is Chemo.
I felt a mass on
My breast in March 2015. They said it was nothing to worry about. In April 2017 the pain kept increasing but that's not what got to go back in. My standard poodle Lincoln did that.
He kept nudging me in the exact spot of the tumor. So I decided to go have it checked out. That's when they discovered the mass was irregular and looked cancerous. My choices were a double mastectomy, nipple sparring and reconstruction or a lumpectomy, nodes removed, reconstructive surgery, radiation and chemo. KI67 protein was extremely high. That is why I choice what I did.
