My thoughts go this way -it could not happen to me- as many say, but it did. April 6, 2016 I got the word that I had a bad mammogram, so I needed an ultra sound to tell more about what was going on. The ultra sound showed a lump, so a biopsy was taken. The biopsy showed the lump was not cancer. I was then sent to a surgeon who gave me options. To remove the lump or leave the lump. I asked if there was a foreign object in me, should it be removed? She replied, "Yes you should get that bugger out of there." OK I like this doctor as she states the truth. At that time, maybe I was in denial or something, but I was thinking the lump was not a bad guy. Then surgery was scheduled for June 21. By June 28 the real bad results where in and July 1 another surgery was scheduled, as the results showed the lump was cancer. The next surgery was scheduled to remove lymph nodes to test. The results showed one had cancer and one did not. Four months have gone by and it is now time to start Chemo. Join me as I go through this storm with my head held high.
