Denise’s Story

Site created on September 11, 2018

After having a lumpectomy, Denise and I were excited to hear the news that we would have nothing to worry about from the pathology report.  Unfortunately that was not the case.  Denise's doctor informed us that there were some bad news from the Pathologist.  They found 3 or 4 different types of precancerous things in the lump.  The doctor was also concerned about the inability to read MRI's and ultrasounds.  The doctor shared 3 potential options.  Two of which were rather unrealistic.  One option and the one that the doctor recommended was for Denise to have a bi-lateral mastectomy.  Based on Denise's family history the doctor felt this would be the most effective and safest option.   We found great doctors and her surgery is set for September 25.
